Home is where the art is
Alexandra’s voyage toward dinnerware started at the table. She attributes the influence for her brand to her love of food, bringing people together, and her own upbringing. Her paternal grandmother loved to bake homemade cardamom raisin bread with local butter, honey and salt. The serving-ware, placed on top of the table, was made from juniper wood. “I can still remember the smell,” she says. Contrastingly, her maternal grandmother’s table was set with fine ironstone and silver. Alexandra has sat comfortably in both worlds and she aspires for her work to do the same.
“Going far helped me to realize what I have right here”
The road has been winding for Alexandra, from working as an apprentice to becoming an accomplished maker with her own brick-and-mortar store. The wanderlust artisan lived and traveled the world before she settled comfortably to her serene abode where she now resides, nestled between the water on a long stretch of land, where life moves with the tides and seasons. Alexandra notes, “going far helped me realize what I have right here.”
This is the time when Alexandra makes without interruption.
In 2016, Alexandra and husband Shayne scaled back on production, focusing on small batch bespoke dinnerware collections. Her ultimate accomplishment has been sticking to her roots as a hand-crafted brand where customers can come and see the process from start to finish. Her favorite quote “still water runs deep” gives a glimpse into the soul of Alexandra and her playfully evocative artwork.
