Ash Street Project

Ash Street Project, the vision of artists Thomas Orr and Joanna Bloom, encompasses art studios, visiting artists, gallery space, community programs and a clay-based emerging artist mentorship program.  Our site also hosts an on-line gallery shop.

Recap: VIsiting ARtist Steve Colby

A whirlwind three weeks have passed, from visiting artist Steve Colby's arrival, to his subsequent Winter Open House Exhibition.  During this brief time, Steven created a body of work using the signature ASP red clay body and a variety of slips and glazes.  It was particularly interesting to witness his application techniques, rendering some spectacular surface results with slips and tin glazes through brushwork, fingermarks, and such.  On his last day with us, Steve cooked up a batch of his grandmother's Syrian lamb stew to share with the ASP community.  Thank you Steven for sharing these few weeks with us!  We look forward to seeing you at NCECA in March.
