Alexandra is an artist who creates functional ceramic wares in Berkeley. 
Originally from Virginia, she studied Sculpture & Extended Media at Virginia Commonwealth University, receiving her BFA in 2010. Her relationship with clay began soon after moving to California in 2012, while taking classes at SFclayworks. Besides the meditative physicality of the process, she is drawn to creating artworks as vessels for everyday use. Her palette is a reflection of the wild, untouched places she holds in her memory --- the deep blues of the Pacific on a clear day, the red-brown of a long dirt road that leads to hot springs, the shallow turquoise coves in Big Sur, collecting pale green desert sagebrush on the side of the road, and falling asleep under a blanket of stars.
