Seed & Time Harvest

Due to the pandemic (Covid-19), we have been all affected by death one way or another.
Grief, depression, loneliness, isolation and dying alone and the lack of family members as support have been devastating. 
Utilizing the principles of agriculture as a point of reference that will help to  better understand the commonality of process.

Principles of Harvest 

We reap only what has been sown. We reap what others have contributed in our lives.

Our Reaping May Come in Different Seasons
 For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven:  (Ecclesiastes 3: 1-2)
 There is a time for sowing and a time for reaping.
(2 Solomon, verse 2)

The seed planter knows that the harvest is always greater than the seed planted.


"We shall reap" refers to a promise of innate potential.
The farmer understands the field must be maintained regularly to provide for conditions that promote healthy growth and fruitful plants.


Whatever we do in the present will impact the future crop. 
Toiling is the key to a harvest.
 Agriculture and the aspects of cultivating soil can be compared to  
 a healthy and strong foundation for nourishing our souls.
Nature encompasses death and rebirth: consequently it reflects the mysteries of life.
We have designed a series of sculptural, textile flower characters that will not fade.
These characters can be viewed as silent companions in memory of deceased loved ones.
As seasons come to past we naturally witness the changes in nature.
The expectation of renewal after devastation is always imminent.
It is our hope that these horticultural flowers can bring a sense of comfort and companionship at a time of grief.
They can be used as articulated toys or decor wherever  you are.
They can be considered as reliable companions.
