Love is a (Medium) Thing Physical on Belcher Chain
The Love is a Thing Physical is a love heart shaped locket held together through magnetic force. The locket can physically hold and protect something of value, sentimental or physical, or simply act as a vessel to later fill or empty. Inspired through a lover's changing forms.
The locket is formed on one side with a poem by Jago Rackham.
On the other side of the heart is an engraving based on a drawing of three figures circling one another by Lowena Hearn.
Love became a thing physical,
shaped and weighted like
a pebble from a stony beach
nestled in a warmhot cheek.
Approximate measurements: Locket: 4 x 4 cm. Chain: 40 cm / 16”.
