Peter Hayes is one of the leading exponents of his art and his sculptural ceramics have earned him recognition as a Fellow of the Craft Potters Association (CPA).
Peter Hayes's ceramics are heavily influenced by his extensive travels to Southern Africa, India, Japan, Korea, New Zealand, Australia, Egypt and Western Europe, as well as found objects which he first started collecting as a boy, and the Cornish landscape - where his artistic career first began. Throughout his travels he has worked with indigenous craftsmen, learning from their age-old techniques, often using the most basic materials and tools.
Hayes exhibits widely throughout the UK and his work is regulary featured at Ceramic Art London (Royal College of Art). His work is in major public and private collections throughout the world, including the Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh; the Museum of Modern Art, Kingston Jamaica; the Gardner Collection, Toronto; the Museum of Modern Art, Brussels, Belgium; the Siber Collection, California, USA; and the JB Speed Museum, Louisville, KY. He has also undertaken numerous public and private commissions.
