Bring the intention of love and nature into your home with my ‘Leaf Love’ Heart Wall Art. Each leaf heart is made using the impression from a real ‘Penny Hedge‘ leaf which happens to be perfectly formed in the shape of a heart. They look wonderful arranged on any wall, in any orientation or grouping. Whether it’s in your lounge area, kitchen, dining room, bathroom or your bedroom.
These lovely ‘Penny Hedge’ leaves come from a beautiful village in North Somerset called Compton Bishop.
They are available in 3 sizes and two green variations, in either rustic speckle, or porcelain (a fresher green and white contrast):
Small (approx 12-14cm at widest point)
Medium (approx 15-17cm at widest point)
Large (approx 18-20cm at widest point)
During the making process, I use a real ‘Penny Hedge’ leaf to make an impression in clay and then cut around the impression leaving a natural border. Then I tease the clay border outwards to create a delicate rim, complimenting the shape of the heart. The rim also describes the intention of love radiating outwards from the heart shaped impression. Finally, I use copper oxide to enhance the impression and a glossy glaze to cover the whole leaf. The heart leaf comes with its own plate hook attached to the back of the piece so it’s ready to hang (you just need a picture nail in your wall).
Dimensions vary slightly because each leaf used in the making process is unique, but there are three main sizes available. Please see the description list above. If you require a different size, please contact me – I love making bespoke commissions!
Every Penny Hedge leaf used in the making is unique, so this means every ‘Leaf Love’ Heart Wall Art piece is unique. I aim to match colours to the images shown as closely as possible, however there will be variations in shade and depth of colour. I always send customers images of the available items I have in stock so you will often have choice. The rustic speckle is made using stoneware clay and the porcelain option creates a fresher green with pure white contrast.
Wipe clean with a damp cloth or gently dust with a feather duster (be careful not to knock the heart leaf off the wall though!). Avoid wetting the sticky loop attachment as this may loosen the loop, so if you intend on hanging the item outside you may need to adapt the way you fix it to a wall. For indoor attachment, all you need to provide is a picture nail in your wall.
In stock, ready made items will be dispatched within 3 days of order confirmation.
