Alissa Coe endeavours to create objects that capture the elegance and strength of the natural world using minimal form with the finest materials and craftsmanship.
Born and raised in rural eastern Ontario, Alissa studied Industrial Design at the Ontario College of Art and Design and has recently moved her studio (and home) from Toronto, Canada to Piemonte, Italy.
Alissa co-founded coe&waito, a small Toronto based ceramic design and production studio, with Carly Waito. Together they created a line of porcelain objects for interiors as well as several sculptural installations.
Alissa now has a practice of her own based in ceramics, focusing mainly on sculpture.
