Is it a Bird? A Plane? No, it’s a sculpture!

Australian Sculptor to give workshop in West Michigan October 2018

January 27, 2018

Sculpture by Graham Hay

So excited to be hosting a 3 day workshop in October!   I have read a lot about  Australian Graham Hay’s artwork.  Always wanting to take one of his workshops and it just hasn’t worked out.  Graham is a sculptor who works primarily in paper and clay.  Last year, he reached out to me asking if I would be interested in organizing a course. The planning has come together.   Lee Ann Frame has agreed to let us use her studio space at Muskegon Community College which will be perfect for both demos and making.  Mike Taylor of West Michigan Clay is donating the paper clay for Graham’s use and the participants.  I very much appreciate both Mike and Lee Ann’s assistance.

Graham Hay

Graham is a clay-aholic.  Graham says “My ceramic paper-clay work is an attempt to illustrate this on-going interest in the organization of the arts and crafts, and society. I am inspired by architecture and local plants, while trying to suggest the cycles, rigidities and dynamic nature of our society, and myself. My compressed paper sculptures are a by-product of office work, research, everyday correspondence and junk mail. Since 1994, it has been a way to create silence in a world of information overload. Despite the promise of the “paperless office” we still keep paper to hand and it can become a symbol of emotional attachment and a link with loved ones.”
Hay is known to lead fun, informative workshops. Participants will watch him demonstrate using this interesting medium – paper-clay, plus create their own pieces with his guidance.  We will have three days of  learning, making, and talking all things art.
