in New Zealand but now living in Australia, Graham Hay uses the technique called
paper clay construction.He assembles his very architectural sculptures using
leather hard and dry shapes in paper clay . Wool, wood, pasta and indeed any
material he thinks will help him with his constructions is used.
A very rapid method of working is assisted by force drying the joins with a heat gun.
If his sculptures get broken even after bisque firing they can be easily repaired by joining the broken pieces with paper clay slip and refiring.
Pouring slip into a low mold to make a sheet of paper clay, which can then be cut into many different shapes.
