Peter Hayes profile picture


Produces Individual work using textured clay combined with burnishing and polishing of surfaces. Weathering is an integral part of the making process and Peter often immerses the forms in the River Avon for long periods of time.

Clay that is not meant to be suitable for raku firing is also used, so that it cracks in the kiln and produces the surface which is a signature of Peter's work.

Born 1946
