A lace skirt within which grass seeds native to northern California are planted and sprouted with the aid of a hydroponic drip irrigation system.  The skirt is supported by an armature made from copper pipes and fittings.  The piece sits in a galvanized tub, holding a pump and water, and illuminated by an internal halogen light bulb.
