Playful Heart

Ceramic Sculpture

(ID: A81153)
Created by Cathy Broski
Inspired by Broski's own pet, this hand-built stoneware dog has a natural coloration achieved by applying a glaze, then selectively wiping the highlights for a weathered appearance. Dog is affixed to ball with the aid of a steel rod. Ball is filled with sand to create a stable sculpture. Each is unique; glaze and surface detail will vary.

    Comments about Playful Heart:

    I purchased this lovely piece to place in my living room in a prominent location. It adds color and whimsy to the space. It is well-done and looks exactly like the picture. I had admired it in the catalog for a long time and finally decided I had to have it. It makes me smile every time I look at it. Only concern is that it seems to defy the laws of physics and gravity in the way it sits and when setting it up I became a little concerned that it might not be terribly stable. But it seems to be and is sitting just fine on a sideboard near the entry to my living room. I have my eye on another piece by this same artist and may purchase it in the future.

    • The Heart Would Not Fit

    Best Uses

      Comments about Playful Heart:

      The heart did not fit in the nose of the dog leaving it standing way above the tip of the nose which looks weird. I am going to have to shave the metal off the end of the post myself just to get it to fit. I expected more from such a nice piece.

      This is just stunning. We bought it to put in one spot, but it deserves a more prominent place, so we rethought our plans! It now has a real place of honor in our dog-friendly home. If you love dogs and appreciate art, you will love this piece!

      This is the second piece by Cathy Broski we've purchased. MORE than satisfied with the quality, look and style of her pieces. [...] Will continue to "hunt" for artwork using your website. Thank you! Debbie Miller
