Phil Hayes

Raku Fired Ceramics made by the artist Phil Hayes in Pen Llyn. We always have a variety of animals in Galeri - there are some examples here  -  and Phil is also open to commissions. 

Artists Statement 

I make ceramic animals and people, most are humorous, some are angry and grotesque and others are just ridiculous, Most are parodies and a simple cartoon drawing starts the process, which I then turn into a three dimensional clay figure. I like to use as many different clays and firing techniques as I can; stoneware, crank, porcelain, reduction, oxidization and raku all add different qualities to the caricature.
