the gilded seed: light weight
"...rugged lifeboats, designed to carry a plant's offspring to the shore of an uncertain future." - from Harold Mcgee's On Food and Cooking: The Science and Lore of the Kitchen
The humble seed, carrier of life.
A safe-keeping place for future things and sunnier times.
How we weather it, we learn that from mother nature.
We look to the seed as a symbol of abundance, resilience, and propagation.
A reminder that everything we've ever needed, we contain within our selves.
Homage to our grandmothers and great-grandmothers. Mothers and non-mothers.
The legacy of a life lived with empathy and care seeds the future with light.
Seeds within seeds within seeds.
