Graham HayABOUT THE PRESENTER

The talk and workshop will be presented by Graham Hay from Australia. Graham is an international expert and pioneer on paperclay.

Graham has researched and taught paperclay techniques since 1993. He is an enthusiastic and inspiring teacher, and has conducted over a hundred paperclay workshops in Australia, Scotland, Wales, Lithuania, Hungary and Singapore. His innovative works are featured in two paperclay textbooks (Gault's Paperclay (USA) and Lightwood's Paperclay and other clay additives (UK)) .

 

Paperclay is popular, because it increases the physical possibilities of any clay body. Because it transcends the limits of traditional clay practices, working with it is stimulating and invigorating. Unfortunately many people are incorrectly introduced to the material and so do not have these experiences.

Anne Lightwood, auther of the UK book on paperclay wrote:

"It is hard to imagine how Graham Hay could make his incredible pieces without paperclay, and the qualities of the material have influenced both his thinking an the way in which he works. …. It is hard to describe the work that he makes. It is totally original, fitting into no known category and not seeming to come from any recognizable ceramic tradition, but rather to derive from the way in which animal structures are built…. Always an innovator, he has developed unorthodox methods of creating the components that he wants for his pieces."

 

"Excellent workshop! Had lots of fun and it's therapeutic! Thanks!" - Angie Ngo

"Graham is very generous with sharing his knowledge." - Kuan Ng

"An excellent workshop with new perspectives in ceramics art." - Sawlani Gopal
