Ashley Gauntt makes functional wheel thrown pottery made from a white stoneware. She frequently creates a geometric surface patterning made from inlayed black oxide stain for the contour lines and bright colors from underglazes and ash glaze that is then sealed with a clear glaze.

Her ceramic work is inspired by the domestic space, and the belief that what one decides to surround themselves with influences them.

Gauntt began her studies in ceramics at St. Petersburg College in 2006 and went to earn her BFA in Ceramics at Arizona State University, Tempe in 2013 where she was awarded the Windgate Scholarship. She has worked with arts organizations including the Ceramic Research Center at ASU Art Museum and the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts, and ceramic artists including Don Reitz, Kurt Weiser and Emily Free Wilson of Free Ceramics.
