Perry Haas was born and raised in Geneva, IL. He studied ceramics at Wabonsee Community College and Utah State University. Haas’s work can be seen in numerous collections, and continues to evolve. He has spent most of his career exploring the streams and mountains of Montana. Currently he is working in Helena, Montana with his wife and dog.
My work expands with movement and fluidity, and how these two interact with one another. Choosing to fire my work in a wood kiln sets each piece up for a surface that is unpredictable. This process allows the work to express itself within the elements of the fire. The failure is only obtainable when you are pushing new direction, allowing yourself to be free with so called expectations.
