Horse Heart Memorial Wall Art
PRICE: $300-$500

DO HORSES FORM BONDS WITH THEIR OWNERS?

Yes, they do. Horses are special creatures. They  have long memories for both the humans they've bonded with in a positive way. They are majestic, strong and can display a broad range of emotions. Whether they’re around humans or other horses, they are amazingly communicative and thrive in social settings. These qualities are part of the reason why horses can develop such a strong bond with humans.
WOOD MATERIAL:
Arizona grown desert hardwood is uniquely hand-crafted and custom designed from weathered-down trees found in the suburban metropolitan Phoenix area. By acquiring desert hardwood logs, allows me to create 100% sustainable, repurposed live edge wood designs. The wood is shape into a single heart and cut in the middle. The horse hair is set in between the two pieces of wood to form a gap. Epoxy resin is poured in the gap to seal the centerline of the heart. This represents the bond between horse and the owner.
HORSESHOE:
The horseshoe is reconditioned by using a bench top wire wheel grinder. It is secured in the center back of the live edge horse heart wood.
DIMENSIONS:
14.5”x 12”, Thickness: 1-1/4 to 1-1/2” (varies)
FRACTAL ART:
A process of applying 20,000 volts of electricity to  the wood surface recreating a lightning strike in slow motion as well as unique abstract figures, tree and vein like shapes.
EPOXY INLAY:
Any voids or cracks from the wood are sealed with epoxy to maintain the integrity of the wood. Epoxy inlay with clear or color pigment is also use to seal the burns created during fractal art process on the surface of the wood.
