Rains Journal: From scouring the internet readings with you as the subject, one can learn that you are not a self-described “bread artist.” Even if the world might attribute that to your profile, what should your business card read?
Lexie: There’s a reason I don’t have business cards. I’m not in the business of business.
RJ: Well, Lexie, for those of us who don’t know, then – who the heck are you?
L: I hope this is the hardest question. I’m a baker and artist from New York, which is where I still live and work.
RJ: Bread on Earth is the mothership to a large leg of your work. How did this come about?
L: Bread on Earth started as an attempt to hold a thematic leg of my work under an umbrella; to centralize (and distinguish from other, non-bread related efforts) the various tangents of bready research I’d started exploring. Initially I hoped to create a place where others could access that information, navigate a map of regional bread types and contribute their own experiences, but it’s become more of just a tool, a name, to point to my breed of thinking about bread critically.
RJ: Why has bread become a central theme in your work?
