Artist Statement
As an artist my main focus is on the creation of figuratively based ceramic sculptures.

My artworks explore the complexities and variants of gender identity, through the expressions of gesture, posture and movement.  Symbolic images of protective armour, clothing and the use of multiple layers are often central to many of my artworks.

My artworks are created in both porcelain and stoneware paperclay.  The combined use of these materials enable the creation of larger artworks that are constructed using thin layers of clay. I mainly use hand-building and free form sculpting techniques.

Hayley-Jay uses Audrey Blackman Porcelain and ES200 (Smooth Body) Paperclay.
