Peter Hayes’ journey as an artist is one that is interwoven with his life experiences travelling the world. With an innate drive to understand the origins of ceramic art and its ancient connection to the Earth, Hayes has engaged with communities across the world where traditions of the artform are centuries-old.
In keeping with the Raku ceramics tradition, Hayes works exclusively with natural earth clay and the flames of the kiln to create contemporary pieces. Running through Hayes’ work is a subtle fusion of eclectic cultures and beliefs with the artist’s own creative vision.
