Welcome to the curious world of Asterfield...
Deponte has continued to explore materials as catalysts with a gentle nod to Victorian designs, the complex history of the necktie and how accessories express our stories, as well as the process of using line to create form. While getting back to the drawing table and working on her 2D collection, she has been playing with some wall hangings, bringing Asterfield into your living space.

One B.F.A in Sculpture + two bags of neckties + an eye for color = an unexpected adventure into refashion.
