The Rena Detrixhe Heirloom project weaves together a series of seeds within a single tablecloth. The artist gathered the kernels while in Lawrence, Kansas, and has since used them to create this intricate piece fit for interior decor.

Thousands of white seeds are stitched into this sheet. At first glance, it appears as if the product is made of lace, seen in the intricate designs and pale coloring. The sheer fabric hangs loosely over the sides of furnishings, making for a dainty home look.

Given the natural elements present in Heirloom, Detrixhe aims to use her art as a way to focus on the earth and human relationships with the planet. This is furthermore reflected in her view of the outdoors which she believes resonates with fine art.
