About Ashley Keller
Ashley Keller is a Canadian clay artist specializing in ceramic pottery containers for bonsai trees, penjing, kusamono and orchids. Every piece is a completely original and unique work of art that is handmade in Canada.
Ashley's inspiration stems from the textures and shapes found in the Canadian landscape combined with her fascination of traditional Eastern culture. She enjoys exploring a variety of traditional, organic and sculptural forms.
She was raised in London, Ontario where she discovered her love for clay in the BealArt Fine Art program. After additional education in ceramics, Ashley later joined the London Clay Art Centre as a studio member of the London Potters Guild in 2017 and works in both their historic building as well as her home-based pottery studio.
Ashley is currently an associate member of the Society of Canadian Artists as well as an executive member of the Board of Directors for the London Clay Art Centre. Her work has been exhibited in London, Toronto and Montreal and has found homes with collectors all over the world including Australia, New Zealand and the United Kingdom.
"I can’t say enough about the quality, the attention to detail and the sheer beauty of Ashley’s work. Opening my first order, carefully and artfully packaged, I realized that Ashley Keller Art was different."
