Collection: Hayden Youlley
Hayden Youlley studied a Bachelor of Design at COFA which gave him the opportunity to experiment with various design disciplines and introduced him to ceramics.
The endless possibilities malleable clay offered to explore his ideas about of surface, scale and volume really sparked his interest. For Hayden, the process of designing, prototyping and producing ceramics, both sculptural and functional, involves the right mix of instant satisfaction, challenge, surprise, problem solving and beauty to keep him interested in exploring all its possibilities.
That’s the fanciest way he has found to say that it is a really fun and rewarding way to get your hands dirty and throw mud around all day.
