Maybe I was born too early to be whole hog on the trend for wallhangings and macramé of recent years. Or maybe it's just my usual resistance to anything that strikes me as too quickly ubiquitous among a certain set.
Still, I'm capable of making exceptions and I think Justine Ashbee's Native Line stands out as something marked with originality and spirit. In her choice of materials and pattern, Justine's work is more than a footnote to a '70s trend — her work takes a new direction and I find myself drawn to it beyond blogger trends.
