Ashley James

I am a ceramic artist and graphic designer living in Hampshire. My ceramic work is influenced by an interest in the natural world, a love of farm life and the surrounding countryside.

“ My grandfather worked on a farm, I have fond memories of hand feeding animals, and milking cows!”

I strive to capture something quirky and unique in each piece I create, and I hope my work captures my personality. It’s important to me that each piece tells its own narrative. Working in stoneware I use oxides, underglaze stains and polymers on the clay surface, with galvanised steel wire for a contemporary feel.

I have exhibited at Southampton Art Gallery, St Barbe Museum & Art Gallery, Mottisfont, (National Trust), Sherfield School and at The Grange, Northington (English Heritage).
