My pal, Wiz, makes hearts and I just love the idea of putting more love out into the world. So, I’ve decided to put my own twist on heart carvings….. I saw a photograph with two people about to kiss and the sun was almost entirely set…all that you could really see was the silhouette of the two people. Their heads together and the negative space between their chins looked much like hearts. So, that was the inspiration for a new breed of wood gifts for me to create. Each one will have a bit of a different shape, color and wood species. They can be personalized and make great wedding and anniversary gifts.

This heart silhouette is made of curly maple. I gave it some color with a little purple wood dye. It is around 10” tall, 8” wide and 1 1/4” thick.
