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.

Took forever!

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.

Worth the wait

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.

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.

Great Gift

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.
