Brian Hayes, MFA

Brian HayesIn 1976, after college, graduate degree work, raising my family and fifteen years of full time teaching I took a long break. I established my pottery and gallery at Gold Hill, near Coloma, California. This is eight miles from the homestead on which my grandfather was born and I spent my youth.

In 1989 I made the first of four adventure and research trips to Japan to work with potters, fire wood burning kilns and to study the culture and aesthetics of Japanese art and Shinto beliefs... .

Projects in my studio projects are created in stoneware clays, fired in ancient Japanese style wood burning kilns and modern gas fueled kilns. My work reflects my interest in Japanese and Native American cultures.

When I am not in the mountains hiking and fishing, or in my studio, I am often at the El Dorado Center of Folsom Lake College where I teach as an adjunct professor in areas of clay sculpture, pottery, and art history. My master's Degree is in Japanese Aesthetics and Philosophy.
