Ascher’s 2,400-square-foot retail space and studio, The Greenpoint View, houses a showroom where she and her partner, Beth Goldowitz, provide custom services for clients, and serves as a space where small groups of artists can learn the craft of fabric making.
“We are very interested in having other artists work in the space and give other people the chance to work with textiles,” said Ascher. “We love to work with other artists.”
Ascher uses the interplay of light and the layering of fabrics and dyes in order to create fusion fabrics. Translucent fabrics, scanning digital images on to fabric, and laminating fabric in glass are all techniques that she uses when working with various architectural design companies on custom interior installation and design projects.
“Fabrics can be coordinated with architectural design and the fabrics that are laminated in glass can even be used as sliding doors,” said Ascher.
She has also recently considered using her fabric and interior design experience in helping everyday people de-clutter their living spaces.
Ascher has decided to provide the service to people who are feeling unhappy in today’s economic climate; she said de-cluttering is a way to help shift one's perspective and create a peaceful environment.
“By de-cluttering your home you can do things in a green way. You don’t have to throw out all of your things,” she said. “Things that were old to you can become new treasures. De-cluttering has a calming effect on people.”
A member of the Greenpoint Merchant Association and a partner of Greenpoint Studios, Ascher said she cannot think of a better place to work than North Brooklyn, which has a vibrant arts scene.
“My passion is creativity,” said Ascher, “I’m inspired by light and nature and also humor. Not everything has to be so serious. Creativity should be fun.”
