Ashley Beth Pottery

Ashley Beth Pottery is the business reflection of my ceramic works. I make original, handmade pieces of both functional and decorative pottery. My work has a vintage feminine inspiration, with some woodland creatures and story book imaging along the way. Functionally, I make cups, mugs, plates, bowls, and pitchers. For decorative work, I make wall scones and planters, vases, as well as a ceramic jewelry line. I incorporate floral patterns, textures from buttons, lace, and other sewing materials, as well as hand drawn images of forest creatures. My goal is to provide a modern reflection on the vintage works I have admired since childhood.

History: Looking back, it's fun see how childhood passions begin to shape our futures. I loved being outside as a kid, I loved getting dirty, experimenting, combining all sorts of mediums. I loved drawing, painting, making, with both traditional (paint, pencils, fabrics) and unconventional, (mud, sticks, grass, etc). I loved to sit with my grandmas and aunts and learn their knowledge of textiles. I loved to touch everything at the stores, take everything in. I had never touched clay until college, and boy, what did I get myself in to!?! It's pretty much been a love story since. I have always loved making and creating, and I have finally found a home in which to do it. I graduated from Minnesota State University Moorhead in 2012 with a Bachelor's of Art degree in ceramics, with understudy in art education. I worked as a professional art framer for 2 1/2 years while keeping my passion of creating as work on the side, until the summer of 2015, when I took the plunge into full time artist and stay at home mom. It has been an exciting and fulfilling experience that I intend to continue for years to come. Now, I spend my time getting muddy, making art, playing with my kids, and living life. For me, I want my art to be a reflection of the beauty around us every day, that everyone can enjoy. I work out of a home studio, where I do my wheel throwing, handbuilding, and run both our electric and gas kilns with my husband.
