Raku long necked bow form sculpture
Signed to slate base
artist: Peter Hayes
Peter Hayes is simply one of the most talented artists in any medium working today.
As a student Peter’s introduction to ceramics was digging Neolithic iron age and Roman samien shards on archaeological digs in Wales. This fascination grew through travelling in Africa, India, Nepal, Japan and New Mexico, and his sculptural pieces adopt all these ideas. He builds up layers of clay combined with burnishing and polishing surfaces to develop texture and form.
Peter is now based in Bath but still spends time in India, and creating pieces in Rajasthan has opened his eyes to other materials to incorporate into his sculpture such as glass, marble, steel and stone.
We are huge fans of his work and find it difficult to part with anything we are lucky enough to come across.
This piece is presented in excellent condition and has the rare feature of the base being ceramic above the slate plinth.
