Pleats for lamps and jewellery

  • • Alexandra opened her first workshop in 1993
  • • She works with fabric and metal
  • • Her objects are decorative but also useful

Alexandra Tsoukala started designing and creating handmade sculptural items, jewellery and fashion items in 1992. Growing up in a house where art and construction were prominent, she started experimenting with handmade creations at a young age. Alexandra uses fabric and metal and her pieces are influenced by the country’s climate, traditions, history and light. Her studies in architecture and dance have also influenced her style. The objects she creates emerge from the material itself and she always keeps in mind that they should serve a purpose. One of the highlights of her working life is when she was asked to design and make a sculptural fabric installation for the Casino Flamingo at Hialeah Park in Miami. “The theme was flamingos and my joy was indescribable.”
