Ashley Akkerson

My earliest memories include watching saturday morning cartoons with a bowl of dinosaur-egg-oatmeal while doodling away at my really cool jelly bean comic strips that my mom swears i should have gotten published. i am a nineties kid through and through. i am in love with a hearty laugh, fluffy clouds, and a good 'ole home-cooked meal. 

my clay journey started in high school when i swore off ceramics for good. four years later, i graduated from my alma mater with a degree in ceramics and sculpture. somehow somewhere, i fell head over heels with this material that seemed too much like play. 

i now have the joy of creating work in my home studio here in west tennessee. ashley nicole pottery is a reminder to slow down, take a few breaths, and simply be your best you.
