These Ceramic hearts shaped pieces glazed with gold and red are made by hand and meant to be held and touched.

When touching the pieces you can feel   the hand that created the work. That hand touches yours


Your hand touches the heart of the creator.

Your heart touches the heart   of the maker.

We are connected through the object -- mind, body and spirit

The title for these pieces "Heart Sutra" (Also called "Wisdom Heart") comes from Buddhist scripture and related scholarly texts.

It refers   to the profound union of compassion and wisdom.
