Heirloom Pea

15″ X 15″
Hemp and Silk – hand dyed, screen printed, stitched and embellished with actual seeds

This piece is one of a series that honors heritage seeds.  The digital image on the seed packet is from an actual vintage packet dating back to the late 1800’s. The text in the back ground lists a variety of heirloom carrots. The “scratches” are copies of sketches from a journal of Henry David Thoreau – bird tracks on snow and the layout of wood and field seeding each other.
