One of the best things about being an artist is having other creative people in my life. We all forge our paths differently, but at our hearts we are the same; we have an irrepressible impulse to create beautiful objects and meaningful experiences. My hope is to eventually introduce you to every single one of my amazingly talented friends because their gifts deserve to be shared. They’ll be sprinkled throughout my Creative Masters and Makers series, which I fully intend to continue developing as soon as I get more time to interview!
Til then here’s a short introduction to my friend, Ashley Barnes. She’s beginning her journey into flourishing as a professional ceramist and her whimsical pieces are sure to put a smile on your face. I caught her at one of the very first local festivals (she’s a newbie to the big A!) of the fall season, Festival on Ponce. Her booth was appropriately decked out in homemade cuteness, setting the perfect scene for her sweetly colored wares.
Hopefully I’ll get to sit down with Ashley within the next few weeks to have a more in-depth look at what goes into making all of these wonderful pieces. For now, be sure to visit her Etsy and Facebook pages! Can you say holiday gift?
