Home Where the Art 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 natural or brightly painted background of pine wood, 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, Erika West, then weaves embroidery thread to create a starburst pattern that radiates from that heart to fill the entire state. Handmade in Los Angeles, California.

Sold individually.

      Great personal and unique gift that brought the receiver to tears. She said she will always have a room on her wall for a gift from her home state.

        Gave this to my 28 year old son for Christmas. He plays guitar and is quite the artist himself. I knew he would appreciate the craftmanship. It blew him away, he loved it!

        Comments about STATE LOVE WALL ART:

        I bought the wooden version for my male friend who just married his male partner in Seattle, WA. The piece came to represent not only their love (the heart as their love, where they met and fell in love and married) but also our community's love of WA state / Seattle, which legalized gay marriage. The city had been open throughout the day and night to catch up in marrying gay couples wishing to marry.

        Very meaningful gift for my lovely friends.

          I bought "New Jersey" to hang in my Pennsy cabin. When I saw it though, I decided to hang it in my office since I work for the State of NJ. I received so many compliments about the piece. Well done and so unique. I will probably buy more as gifts!!
