Heirloom Tomato

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 background 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.
