Technically, Alexis is pushing the boundaries of what is possible. Her glass figures are sculpted entirely freehand, while the glass is hot on the end of a blowpipe or a punty rod. With work ranging in scale to life-size torsos hanging in six-foot-tall steel frames, her largest figures are close to half her body weight and take a team of six assistants to handle the glass while she sculpts it. For her cast metal pieces, she pours molten bronze or iron.

While making intrinsically beautiful objects, Alexis explores issues of human nature, society, and the relationship of humans, nature, and industry. Her hanging figures, for example, are an eloquent exploration of objectification of the body.

The glass simultaneously appears like skin and evokes a sense of something superficially applied, like a garment. Cast iron “meat” hooks are a visceral comment on the objectification of the body.

The color on the interior of the torso is different from the exterior color, suggesting that if one goes below surface appearance there is more to be discovered. Steel frames represent conceptual boxes of perception that society puts us in.
