We are so very excited about this NEW piece which was fired with horse hair! This is a gorgeous and really exciting new method of raku firing we have been working on and so far this is only the second one of it's kind in our collection!
Quite a contemporary feel to this compared to a lot of our other pieces, yet with a very powerful message with the solitary little red heart representing 'One True Love'.
I really love this contemporary theme of black and white with just the one bright red umbrella! It can symbolise so many things in life and comes from the expression "Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain".
For anyone who has experienced the atmosphere of love and romance in beautiful Venice, with it's gondolas and sunshine, this piece should definitely evoke some nostalgic images and emotions! It has a little more of a contemporary feel than most of our other designs.
