Ashley Howard is a ceramic artist who produces porcelain and stoneware vessels informed by a dialogue between Far Eastern and homespun pottery and traditions. He draws upon his interest in ritual vessels, the spaces they occupy and the ceremonies that surround them. Notions of reverence and transience are also explored. Almost all work is thrown on the wheel although at times it might be subject to varying degrees of manipulation and altering. Specific surface techniques have been developed to draw, brush, and print with glaze and enamels.
