These home accessories are inspired by the recent move of my grandmother, who was entrenched within a tomb of family artifacts. Many of these objects, furniture and tchotchkes, have descended to her nearest and dearest. Translation: into another storage unit. Heirloom speaks to this burden of stuff, physical and emotional, between generations of people to whom acquisition meant wealth.
