Ali Filippelli is the artist behind Little Gray Studios. Her background is in archives and fine art collection management, as well as documentary photography. She has worked with art and artists since 2006. Ali grew up in a Swedish/American household in New York City, now she lives in Portland, Maine and has been making ceramics since 2019. Her art is influenced by a Scandinavian minimalist aesthetic, but also by nature. Her ceramic pieces reflect this - the bright blue patterns on white clay paired with organic hand built shapes.
