Melissa Alves is an artist based out of Los Angeles. She works primarily in electric red and brown stoneware, reflective of her southwestern aesthetic. Her influences range from sacerdotal and effigy vessels of indigenous American tribes to Oaxacan folk art. Both functional and elaborately ornamental, she creates refined ceramic art for daily living and decor.
