Description

This anatomical sculpture of a human heart was made entirely by hand - first needle-felted out of 100% merino wool roving, then appliqued with a piece of red burlap, and finally embroidered with silk thread. The textures of the burlap and wool combine in a wonderful way, lending the appearance of a heart that has been broken, patched and finally healed.

So is it a symbol of human resilience? A present for someone who didn't expect such a literal interpretation of "give me your heart"? A handy pincushion for when you're having a bad day?

This piece can be displayed as a work of art, used for a costume piece, or cuddled like a plushie. The possibilities are endless.

It measures approximately 5" tall x 3.5" wide x 1.5" thick. It is fully dimensional.

Pins not included.

I have commissioned many things over the years such as artwork, plush toys, custom card sleeves and sometimes it's good and other times it's not. Sometimes the commission breaks in the middle of it and all we did was waste time. As a result, I can appreciate a commission that seemed smooth and comes out looking great. I've worked with this artist a few times and I'm always pleased with the outcome.

The plush toys come out feeling high quality and look amazing.
Owl Emporium is big on proper communication. The best examples are when there are multiple ways to accomplish a task. Owl Emporium will reach out to me and provide me with all my options as well as examples so I know what I can expect from the outcome.

Owl Emporium demonstrates good business models and only moves forward after consulting with me first.

Thank You!

I commissioned a custom plush doll of my girlfriend’s horse (Loch), based on photos I supplied. Natalia did brilliant work — my wishes were totally fulfilled! Loch-plush is an amazing likeness, and a treasure forever for my girlfriend, who was overjoyed upon receiving him. His fur is wonderful likeness of the actual horse’s white-grey natural color, and delightful to touch. Same with his mane and tail. Natalia clearly took great care to get all the details right, and translate them into Loch-plush, who is also posable, as she used an armature with him. I can’t recommend Natalia’s work strongly enough!
