Clay Heart

This is my first attempt at clay! It was more fun than I thought it was going to be.


  1. Did you make any others? I'm looking to do a photo project with some molds of hearts and this is by far the closest to what I was looking to recreate myself! Any suggestions or tips when working with the clay? Thanks for any help you can provide! zack [at] zballantine [dot] com


  2. Zack--
    No, this is the only one that I made! If you're trying to make a heart too, I would definitely print pictures. I looked up old anatomy illustrations and worked from the photos that I printed. If you've never worked with clay before, like me, I would suggest going to some sort of pottery studio and working out a time when you could go in for a project.

  3. This is beautiful! I'm new to using clay at all, or modelling anything with my hands! I envy your ability to just 'do it' - how long did it take? :)
