Red Lodge Clay Center Long-Term Resident 2013-15, (AIA) 2017
Perry Haas has been working with clay since 2003. He studied at Waubonsee Community College in Sugar Grove, Illinois and Utah State University where he received his BFA. Perry has been a resident artist in Denmark at Guldagergaard , The Archie Bray Foundation, Clay Studio of Missoula and the Red Lodge Clay Center. Haas’s work continues to evolve and has been seen in numerous collections. He is inspired by the mountains and streams of the landscape that surrounds him in Montana. Currently Perry lives and works out of his home studio in Clancy, Montana.
My work expands with fluidity, balance, and how these two interact with one another. The love of the wood fire ceramic surface, particularly how unpredictable it is. Allowing it to express it self within the elements of the fire.
