Alex Marshall's ceramics have been described as "beautifully functional sculpture". We believe the organic simplicity of her pieces is very modern and a joy to live with every day. Ceramic sake cups are great for sauces, dips, sorbets, spices or as salt cellars. Mix and match or order a group all in the same color. Each sake cup is food safe, lead free, residential dishwasher safe, microwave safe and can be heated in an oven up to 250 degrees. Available in any combination of her glaze options to complement your living space.
One aspect of "green" that's true for everything Alex Marshall Studio's produces: longevity. When something is made to last, you don't have to buy it again, which decreases the impact on natural resources and keeps waste out of landfills. In addition, all of their ceramics and glazes are made in Northern California, which means less fuel consumption and production consumption.
Alex Marshall’s ceramics can be described as beautifully functional sculpture. Many have referred to her work as organic — an elegant mixture of art and chance. But she takes a highly skilled and deliberate approach to her art.
Ms. Marshall, who studied painting and ceramics sculpture at Skidmore College and received her MFA in conceptual art from the San Francisco Art Institute, designs and produces dinnerware and ceramics with an authenticity to both beauty and function. Her collections cannot be described as either formal or casual dining — it’s artful dining.
"I wanted to design a line which maintains the intent and authenticity of the individually handcrafted piece," says Alex. "Each piece retains its own integrity, seen in the slight asymmetry, while remaining a clean modern form." When stacked, her plates resemble layers of rock or the gentle lines of a palm frond. This paradox of strength and grace is exactly the juxtaposition with which she feels comfortable. Her signature glazes are layered in naturally composed earthy colors and texture.
Alex’s work is represented in some of the finest stores in the country, in addition to custom projects - including magazine, cookbook and television stylings, restaurants, special events, public and private home staging, and floral design.
