Ài 愛 (pronouced "Aye") is the Chinese word for love - an exquisite glass heart with a magnet attached on the back; resulting in a beautiful and useful objet d'art.
Blown with a centre of transparent scarlet glass, then coated with clear glass, thereafter 23.5K Gold leaf is layered on top and finished with a scattering of lustre glass which when oxidised, results in a metallic shine. This 3D piece will catch and reflect the light, enchanting everyone who walks past!
The lead time is currently about 10 days to craft the hearts, so unfortunately it is too late to create new or custom hearts for Valentine's Day 2021, however this is not the only occasion to gift a heart - a surprise any other time of the year to show your affection is sure to warm your loved one's heart even more!
