Alexandra pays special attention to the materials and colors she uses. Her creations are made of the finest materials available. Among those preferred are precious woods such as ebony, snakewood and macassar, and animal skins such as dogfish, crocodile or ostrich. Other favorites include cheesecloth, organza and silk satin.
Alexandra Sojfer especially likes to revisit ancient forms through associations of unexpected materials. She imagines, for example, the combinations of dogfish, sharkskin, ivory or shell inlaid olive tree handles, or of Swarovski crystal inlaid ebony.
