Artwork > Heirloom Collection

An heirloom represents a legacy to those that come after one has gone on. Plastic bags are perhaps one of the unintended heirlooms that will remain for generations to come. The collection is made up of works that are all crocheted from used plastic bags that would otherwise have gone into the landfill. Each piece is also an oversized representation of a household or personal object that once was traditionally made by hand such as garments, dishcloths, potholders, lace, doilies and curtains.
