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.

    Comments about HEART STRINGS STATE LOVE WALL ART:

    Ordered this in July and didn't receive until March! Uncommon Goods did not give me anything for the extended wait time. I was hoping they would give me some kind of a discount. Claimed the would send me a $10 gift card, but I never received it! Item is unique and nice-looking. Appears sturdy and should last.

      This sweet little piece lovingly shows where my heart is home!

      Service and delivery comments:

      The product arrived 4 months after I ordered it. I inquired after the first month of delay and was told the artist was running behind on orders and it would arrive shortly. After that I inquired two more times to uncommon goods asking if the order would ever come and received no response.

      As the artists' dealer, uncommon goods needs to provide better customer service/information to those who have placed orders. I had no way to contact the artist and did not know for months if I would ever receive the order.

        I got this for a Christmas present for my boss & his wife - they're both from Texas & love to go home to visit. It's perfect! Beautifully done & unique; I know they'll love it.

        Service and delivery comments:

        I ordered this in early May & finally got it in September! I wasn't in any hurry, as it's a Christmas present...and I understand the artist has to create each one from scratch as she gets the orders in. She even hand-wrote me a thank-you note & apologized for the delay! So glad I placed the order when I did, though!

              Due to popular demand, the wait for this piece of art was pretty long, but the finished product was worth it. It is gorgeous. The attention to detail is amazing, and it says everything I wanted it to as a gift for a friend.

              Service and delivery comments:

              Delivery was very late, but customer service was excellent and friendly and they compensated for my delay with a voucher toward a future purchase. UncommonGoods is doing all the right things to keep my business.

              I bought this gift for my parent's 40th Wedding Anniversary. They loved it! They couldn't believe the quality and uniqueness of the art piece. It took longer than expected to arrive, but it was worth it.

                  Comments about HEART STRINGS STATE LOVE WALL ART:

                  This is a really great unique gift. I got one for an Idahoan and the outline of that state is just so beautiful that the piece looked great. The artist pays attention to every detail. The recipient was very pleased. The only down side was the wood that it's on had a knot in it at the bottom that was partially covered by the state but was visible at the bottom. Given the small size of the wood I felt like a more perfect piece could have been picked but my significant other thought that the small imperfections added to it's charm.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  I ordered mine in early May and it came at the end of July about 6 weeks later than originally planned. I did get an email 3 weeks after I ordered it saying that it would be late and then it came 3 weeks later than the second projected date. But Uncommon Goods was nice enough to waive the shipping cost and overnight it to me.
