Native Line is artist Justine Ashbee’s name for her Native American-inspired weavings. Her wall hangings are woven in gold, silver and brass; seen in person, they evoke Jazz Age glamour more than tribal craft.
Weaver Ashbee makes necklaces ($285) that are like mini wall hangings. We?re lusting after one to become our new signature jewelry.
Artist Jim O’Larte creates custom pieces (from $400) on commission. Here, he installs a color-packed piece. Contact Jim at Jimolarte@gmail.com.
A detail of O’Larte’s handiwork.
Artist Haley Ann Robinson makes one-of-a-kind wall jewelry she calls geobils from a driftwood base with metal links. Brass and copper tubing, stone beads and beach glass also appear in her work. Out to Sea Geobil, ($194)
More macramé inspiration: We like these one-off chandeliers that Portland-based artist Sally England made for an art gala.
Until recently, we pretty much thought of macramé as a vehicle to house our spider plants. But lately we?ve spied this humble craft around town in new colors, materials and shapes--and we?re crushing hard. Here, a few ways to get in on the trend.
Gilded Hollywood Regency Wall weavings without the crunch factor, these Native Line pieces (from $360) at Chay boutique are woven with brass, silver and metal threads to glitter in the warm Cali sun.
Pop Interiors Artist Jim O?Larte recently moved to L.A. from the San Diego area. We discovered his latest work, neon macramé wall hangings (from $400), at the recent pop-up Parachute Market in DTLA. He?s prepping a website now; until it?s finished, contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Colorful and Earthy At Mohawk General Store, N.Y.C. émigrés Brook & Lyn are making cotton, wood and copper pipe wall hangings (from $450) that are almost sculptural in their build--and manage to be both comforting and hip.
Minimalist Geobils (from $185) are metal-and-stone assemblages from a Portland/Los Angeles-based artist that are made to be hung against a wall or from the ceiling like a mobile. These aren?t technically macramé, but we like the way they blast the idea of a crafted wall hanging into the next dimension.
