Mended Heart

This piece was originally intended to be part of a threesome. My wife has a real thing about hearts and the house is littered with them in all shapes and sizes and different materials.

The idea behind this piece is that the first would be a broken heart, second (this one) a mended heart and thirdly a healed but scarred heart.

I have not yet managed to finish either of the other two pieces.

This is a section of 50mm thick reclaimed Oak stitched with a length of steel cable. It was an absolute joy to work with this wood.

Funny, it reminds me of “Edward Scissorhands”. I do like it, I bet a Goth shop would pay a substantial bit of money to get their hands on it

Really cool idea. Were you planning to have them all displayed together in one piece, or just all separate on the wall, sort of thing? Either way, a really neat idea and excellent execution.

I have done something very similar in a single piece. It was very well received.
