Mercury Glass Heart Sculptures
This recycled glass heart rests wonderfully within a hand forged iron vine stand, that is hand painted in dark espresso with a flat finish. The heart's mesmerizing cracked silver shine appearance comes for mercury paint that is added after the molten glass cools to room temperature. A hand forged Iron Flower Crown / Cap sits atop the Mercury heart. The flower cap is fitted with a cork that tightly fits into the neck of the glass heart, and completes this recycled work of art. The glass sculpture comes in small and medium sizes.
Design by San Miguel
If the design of our silver recycled glass heart sculptures has caught your eye, it is because it is a design original by San Miguel Collection. This art sculpture is a perfect gift for those who believe in the beauty of second chances. The glass recycled in the artisan cities of Central Mexico get a second chance to become a beautiful gift of admiration. We only work with the best creative artisans to take recycled glass and transform it into a precious symbol of enduring love.
For the talented artisans who work in the artistic city of San Miguel de Allende in Central Mexico, giving life to a recycled material is a true art mission. We work with them to develop a unique design for the glass sculptures, and they find creative materials to bring the design to life.
They will collect recycled glass and crush it into small pieces to then be heated in large kilns reaching 1500*F. The artisans then pour the hot glass into the San Miguel heart design molds. To give the heart sculpture it's cracked effect, the artisan will allow the glass to cool and then “crackle” the glass to give the look of cracking glass.
The iron stand the recycled glass heart sculpture rests on is forged by the artistic blacksmiths of the same city. They cut quarter inch thick solid steel bars to then heat, hammer and shape the bars to fit perfectly around the heart sculpture. This process gives the iron stand a more organic look when accompanied by the art piece.
