About Corrin Ceramics
Corrin Ceramics is a handmade ceramics line designed and produced by Alexandra Corrin. The pieces are inspired by Scandinavian and Mid-Century design principles, primitive tools, psychedelic art, and the effortless and untamed balance of nature.
Each piece recalls design aesthetics from the past while staying contemporary and accessible. Many of my handle designs are inspired by curves on buses, trains, airplanes, and cars. Keeping with the Mid-Century aesthetic I like to keep the design simple and organic looking while adding layers of color to set the wares apart.
About the Artist
Alexandra is a ceramic artist based in Los Angeles and raised in Long Beach, California. She received her bachelor’s degree in anthropology from Cal State Long Beach and after exploring a career in the worlds of interior and industrial design came back to her true love, ceramics.
Alexandra makes both mixed media sculpture and functional ware. Her sculptures are heavily inspired by the natural word, especially the intertidal zone of Southern California, and by the subtle ways that humans generate nonverbal cues. They are arranged to communicate the chaotic yet harmonious balance of nature.
Her functional ware is an exploration of central motifs in Mid-Century design integrating a balance of contemporary meets primitive and simple meets chaotic to create pieces with lots of personality.
