Ash Street Welcomes Matthew Asbill to the Mentorship Program!
The Ash Street Project is pleased to introduce our newest member to the mentorship program: Matt Asbill. Matt is new to Portland, having recently lived in Jackson Hole, Wyoming and Brooklyn, New York. A graduate of University of Vermont, Matt found ceramics at the very end of his undergraduate career, and fell immediately for wheel work. He has since worked in art centers in Wyoming and New York and workshopped at both Penland and Anderson Ranch. Matt is very interested in working in a community of potters/artists, applying himself to focus his vision and pottery voice. Matt appeared an obvious fit to us immediately, and has already proven to be the perfect balance to our group. For more about Matt's background, please see the EAMP participants section of this site.
