Home Where the Heart Is

It's been said that, no matter where you go, there will always be invisible threads that tie you to your home. These custom wall art plaques make those threads visible - and the results are strikingly beautiful. On a brightly painted background of reclaimed pine, the US state of your choice is outlined in tightly-spaced, hand-painted nails, and marking the spot near the physical heart of your favorite state is a symbolic heart to show your love. The artist, Eleanor Mathis, then weaves painted embroidery thread to create a starburst pattern that radiates from that heart to fill the entire state. Handmade in the USA.

Sold individually.

A Texas girl now living in Mississippi, Eleanor Mathis is drawn to maps. She says, "Each place I've lived, and each person I've met has profoundly shaped who I am." Her handcrafted decorative artwork celebrates the irregular shapes of map borderlines, transforming them into beautiful, geometric abstractions, while still honoring the strong emotional bonds we form with special places. Her geographic string art creations playfully combine industrial materials with midcentury-inspired whimsy.
