About Me

Hi, my name is Asha! Here is a little insight about my journey as a ceramicist.

I received a BFA in ceramics from Montclair State University in New Jersey. After discussing with with my mentor my career goals, I decided to pursue my MFA in ceramics because I wanted to teach at a college level.

My masters thesis was how to portray movement through pottery. My work at that time was inspired by my undergrad studies of dance. At that point in time I was creating large sculpture that resembled a dancer in motion.

After completing my MFA at Montclair State University in 2010, I was offered an adjunct professor position in ceramics at MSU which I gladly accepted. I taught ceramics at MSU for approximately 4 years, then decided to term my position there to care for my growing family. At this point I already had a young son and another on the way.

Fast forward 10 years and here is where I am now. I have 3 children and a small studio in my home. I get to work in the studio in-between being a quintessential dance and soccer mom. LOL…

I have over the last few years transitioned from sculpture to functional pottery due to family and friends asking for just a simple mug. Although I have been doing pottery for years, I am still learning and growing as an artist. I recently branched out into other types of functional pieces.

All of my artwork is hand thrown on my pottery wheel. I use various different clays to form my pieces. I mix my own glazes from the raw materials so I am able to get them just the way I want. My process makes each piece unique, so no two pieces are exactly the same.
