Ashlynn Pope makes wheel thrown and hand built ceramic pottery that narrates her own memories and the memories of other victims of abuse through their journey of self-discovery. Her work is influenced by the culturally related and narrative properties of the African American quilt. Her work is also inspired by woodblock prints by which she uses a similar technique to produce powerful, moving images in clay.
