About the Artist

Marissa Y Alexander is an artist currently living and working in Hamilton, Ontario. She builds with clay to make both functional and sculptural ceramic objects. She is interested in the process of discovering form through coil building and establishing alluring surfaces, creating pattern and narrative to visually describe her vision – vision as something of great beauty – vision as
envisioning contemporary life. Marissa received her MFA in Ceramic Art from Alfred University (2019) and was previously a full-time Artist-In-Residence at Harbourfront Centre. She has a BA in Sociology from McMaster University and an Advanced Diploma in Craft and Design (Ceramics) from Sheridan College.
