HISTORY
Alexandra Constantinescu (b. 1981) is an emergent artist from Cluj-Napoca, who has been working for nearly 2 years in her open studio, developing unique design objects in limited series, made in porcelain or faience. Suitable for a sometimes slightly undetermined home use, the objects she creates are identifiable by the fact that she playfully goes around the classical ergonomic principle, introducing instead to notion of the decorative element that bears functionality. Alexandra  graduated in 2004 from The University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, Sculpture Department, where she also has been enlisted since last year with The Master Degree Program.

SPECIFIC
By introducing a minor difficulty in gripping a mug or lifting a lid, Alexandra helps the user to become aware of the shape and tactility of the ceramic object, the preciousness of the content, pinpointing a moment of escaping the mechanical mind-less repetition of daily common actions. The signature color palette of her objects is the merging gamma between the white of the porcelain and two nuances of green of the glazing. Suitable for a sometimes slightly undetermined home use, the objects Alexandra Constantin creates are identifiable by the fact that she playfully goes around the classical ergonomic principle.

The decorative tridimensional parts stand for classical handlers, providing minimal gripping points. The object can be manipulated by the creative engagement of these contact areas. In the same time, a revival of the tactile sense and of the conscious choice for living in the present moment is ensured.
