While attending the Girl Gang Craft event in Oakland, we stumbled across the lovely Alexandra Barao and now we're sort of obsessed...

Alexandra is a potter and educator living in Oakland, California. She grew up in Virginia with red clay beneath her feet, and studied Sculpture & Extended Media at Virginia Commonwealth University, but her relationship with ceramics began after moving to the Bay Area in 2012. 

She creates functional ceramics that are intended for everyday use, made primarily on the wheel and fired in gas reduction kilns. Her work is inspired by minimalist forms and a connection to the earth. This past summer, she had the opportunity to take a workshop at Penland School of Crafts in the mountains of North Carolina, where she created work and participated in the firing of wood and soda kilns. She teaches art at an elementary after-school program in San Francisco and is a member at The Potter’s Studio in Berkeley.

Check out Alexandra's wares at these upcoming events:

12/7 - 9 @thepottersstudio - Berkeley
12/20 @tenderloinmuseum - SF
