Ashley has been working with clay for four years now and loves every bit of it. She is currently a high school graduate finishing up her first term at UCC. She plans on going to Portland to study at Pacific Northwest College of the Arts for her Sculpting and Fine Arts major. Her plans center around one major idea: "To be a ceramic artist and create a lot of different kinds of pottery in all sorts of colors and sizes. From artistic pieces to merely functional ones, from big to small, they each are specially made with a different idea from the last, making a collection of work truly unique."
