"I PRODUCE CULTURE," SAYS ALEXA LIXFELD.CROSS-CULTUREWOULD BE BETTER. WHETHER ITS A PROJECT IN WHICH SHE TRIES TO USE CONCRETE AS AN ALTERNATIVE FOR CERAMICS IN HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTS, A PERFUME, FOOD-DESIGN, AN EAT-ART PERFORMANCE IN WHICH THE PARTICIPANTS LADLE SOUP FROM A PLATE WITH A 1,4 METER DIAMETER, OR A SOCIO-ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT FOUNDATION SHE SET UP IN SRI LANKA, TO HELP CHILDREN AND RUAL WOMEN - SHE OFTEN SEEMS TO GO FOR A CHALLENGE THAT OTHERS THINK IMPOSSIBLE. IN CREACETE™ SHE COMBINED HER PIONEERING EXPERIMENTS WITH CONCRETE IN THE FIELD OF TABLEWARE WITH THE ULTIMATE IN FINISHING, THE TRADITIONAL JAPANESE URUSHI LACQUERING TECHNIQUE FROM WAJIMA, WHILE LEAVING THE CONTRAST OPEN AND VISIBLE. AFTER A TEN-YEAR CAREER AS A MODEL, ALEXA LIXFELD STUDIED AT KÖLN INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL OF DESIGN, UNIVERSITY OF APPLIED ARTS PFORZHEIM AND DESIGN ACADEMY EINDHOVEN, THE NETHERLANDS. SHE WORKS IN HAMBURG SINCE 2006, RUNNING HER OWN STUDIO.
