Each potholder from House of Hearts in India comes with a hand drawn tag with a smiling face on it and “Thank You” written in English.
I still have some House of Hearts potholders for sale, they’re sitting on a shelf in my studio. This tag, hanging off the shelf, caught my eye, all the features so carefully and skillfully drawn.
I’ve heard that when we draw a picture of an eye, we tend to draw the shape of our own eye. Makes me wonder if this is a likeness of one of the women who made it.
