This is an originally designed 3" ceramic heart bead. The bead has lavender and pink airbrushed clouds in a blue sky with an etched streak of lightening and plum mountain peaks. It has a glossy glazed finish. * 3" ceramic heart bead * 3/8" holes(may be sanded if rough) * just under 1" thick * hand painted/airbrushed * original * vintage (I made it in the early 1990's) I sculpted the original heart in plasticine clay, then made plaster mold. I poured the ceramic slip into the mold, let it set until it was about 1/8" thick, then poured out the excess. When it set up I removed it, put two holes in it, cleaned it up, numbered & signed it . When it was dry, I airbrushed the sky and the mountain with underglaze, etched the lightning, then fired it. Next I put 2 coats of clear gloss glaze and fired it again.
