Alex Colombino - Studio Assistant - (he/him)
Alex was born in Providence and raised in Wakefield, Rhode Island. He has always had an admiration for ceramics and tactile forms. Alex graduated from the University of San Francisco with a degree in Media Studies, which translated to work in documentary photography. His inspiration pulled from a loving understanding of people, society, culture, and tradition rooted in the deep past. Early in his exploration of ceramics, Alex has taken to handbuilding - exploring the dichotomy between form and function. He continues to study the early beginnings of pottery and sculptural work - drawn to silhouettes, organic finishes, and the medium’s continued importance as it transcends through a modern context.
