The Temporium 2011: Hamburg designer Alexa Lixfeld is presenting a range of handmade products at The Temporium including handwoven dolls based on drawings made by school children in Sri Lanka.

The childrens' drawings are faithfully replicated in the designs for the dolls, which are then woven from cotton by women in Kurunegala, Sri Lanka.

Lixfeld will also bring her coloured porcelain crockery and vessels to The Temporium.

These objects have a matt exterior and glazed interior finish and celebrate the slight imperfections that result from hand-finishing processes.
