Julie Kornblum
Julie Kornblum combines very ancient and traditional artforms with the refuse of modern life to create contemporary art work.

"I like to take a new look at old traditions by applying post-modern materials to the ancient processes of basketry and weaving. As a weaver and basket maker, I feel part of a continuation of a thousand generations of artists and weavers from around the world. As a person in the 21st century, I am concerned with what we throw away.

In the past hundred years plastics have facilitated marvelous advancements in medicine, food storage, communications, etc; but have become a worldwide waste and disposal problem. I hope my work will raise awareness of how our plastic trash impacts the environment."

Julie's art is comprised of cast off, surplus, or waste materials: copper wire from the recycle yard; audio cassette tapes that even the thrift store wanted to throw away. Yarns and materials of unknown purpose somehow find their way to her studio and she also collects plastic bags and bits of packaging that are trashed after being used once.
