ARTIST BIO & STATEMENT
My name is Ashley Mayhugh. Pottery is what chose me in this life. It’s what stuck with me. No matter where I went, it always seemed to be right there. You could say that pottery and I were destined to be. So I finally chose it back. Ever since then, it has carried me. Taken me to places I never thought I’d go. Given me purpose. A reason to believe in myself. Something that is mine. That no one can take away from me. Something that I get to share. An opportunity to teach a skill to others. Pottery is more than functional or non-functional. It is an excuse to slow down. To focus. To get into a creative flow. To listen to the ether and what it has to show me. Through me. I am so lucky to have been chosen.
