Beige Vessel 3 - Abiam Alvarez

  • Abiam Alvarez is a ceramicist based in Gilroy, California. He spent the first nine years of his life in Leon Guanajuato, Mexico, before migrating to the United States in 1999 and settling in the small California town of Firebaugh, a farming community surrounded by fields of crop. Growing up, Abiam experienced working in the agricultural industry by spending his summers in the fields and attending school the rest of the year. His roots are closely tied to the central valley, where he grew up, and creates artwork that speaks of the labors and political issues surrounding agriculture, consumerism, and immigrant workers.

    Abiam is a first-generation college student in his family. He attended California State University, Fresno, where he earned a BA in art and design with an emphasis in ceramics and sculpture. He later returned to earn his single subject teaching credential in art to teach high school art courses. In 2019, Abiam earned his MFA degree at San Jose State University. He currently resides in Gilroy, CA and teaches both high school and college ceramics while also working on his own pottery and sculptures. He has 18 years of ceramics experience and continues to learn about the processes of contemporary ceramics and historical ceramics.
