Shaun Hayes – teaching assistant

Shaun’s ceramic work uses imagery taken from toys, popular culture and found traditional ceramic figurines, cutting up, exchanging, adding and altering elements to create narrative sculptures often with a slight unearthly, mysterious quality. In describing his art practice, Shaun has said that he “makes pots, weird smashed up figurines and other ceramic objects”. Shaun received a Bachelor of Arts (visual), with Honours majoring in Ceramics from the ANU School of Art in 2013.
