The ability to explore and challenge the boundaries of the woven process using a range of materials allows me to move away from the customary processes without removing myself from the customs with which I am associated. My weaving practice acknowledges tupuna (ancestors) who have paved a creative huarahi (pathway).

Christina is a master weaver and has been weaving for more than forty years. She attributes her knowledge to many people, especially her mother, Matekino Lawless, who is also a weaver and has been her strongest support and mentor. Christina is grounded in the traditional weaving techniques but has moved towards more contemporary forms. She continues to push the traditional boundaries of weaving, using materials such as glass, copper, stainless steel, wood and Perspex.
