A woman looking through the gallery asked if I could design a piece that reflected her special relationship with her son; a relationship that involved a heart health crisis. Upon reflection I suggested overlapping hearts made from translucent white alabaster.
The result is two superimposed hearts but when placed in a window and backlit the smaller heart “ghosts” in the larger one. The warm light also shows fissures in the stone that appear like arteries. An unusual design but a perfect match for what the client desired.
