Ashley Sheekey

Site designed in collaboration with Chris Corby

Ashley Sheekey is an artist based in Brighton, UK.

I make work (drawings, ceramics, writing, collaborative projects) that explores my interest in the urban environment. I am especially intrigued by the overlap between public and private space, and the presence of generous and hostile design.

At the moment

I’m excited to have a selection of my works on show at The House

In the studio I’m developing a series of wet/dry vases influenced by ironwork railings and refining the form of some new slip-decorated stoneware jugs.

A second iteration of my ongoing collaborative project, COMMON PLACE is also in progress.
