Asawa translated her elegant copper and monel tied-wire or bronze sculptures into the images she drew on the stones at the Tamarind Lithography Workshop in Los Angeles in the 1960s.

From the delicate, woven forms of her three-dimensional sculpture, she transposed the light, the space, the lacy forms confidently onto the sheet of paper . These unique and complex forms within forms became an environment of dense foliage and flower forms. In lithographs, sculptures or drawings, Asawas oneness for natural forms is revealed.
