Spence Hayden's Profile

About

Hello. My name is Spence Hayden. I'm a retired (not by choice) master jeweler, metalsmith, clay sculptor/painter and now part time entertainer. My artwork, paintings, clay art and sculptures can be found in galleries, museums and private collections throughout the US, Canada, Central and South America, Great Britain, Japan, Germany and who knows where else. I have over 100 awards and Best In Shows to my credit and I've earned every one of them! Had to take a 12 year break from the arts in order to rebuild the immune system, etc...A slow return, thanks to etsy, I'm back showing and hopefully selling some of my work. I'll be utilizing this etsy shop for show of my most prized and favorite artworks. Works of which I believe are museum quality. Am hoping that you will just have to own one!! Thus, my purpose for opening another etsy shop. A great outlet for some of my more productive works. As well tons of stuff that I accumulated…

Thus, my purpose for opening another etsy shop. A great outlet for some of my more productive works. As well tons of stuff that I accumulated during my jewelry days. Prices are quite a bit more affordable and fun! So, please visit my HaydenStudios shop. Right here on etsy! I'll be stocking the heck out of this shop between now and Christmas!
Some brief history: I was forced to retire from the jewelry industry due to health issues and heavy metals overload. (Art process does not come with a warning label! especially jewelry!!)
A long road back? Several years of Natural Chelation, change of life and lifestyle and patience, I can finally announce, "New artwork coming soon to Etsy"! Talk about redefining ones path!! It's all good though!!
2015: To all my etsy friends: Have been busy in the NEW "pot shop", creating new work for the Summer. Looks like some of my best work yet!! Tea bowls are Killer! Let the firing begin!! New work posted soon!!

A little warning to "ALL" artists and craftsmen: Many materials we love and use are not adequately identified as hazardous! Always use proper ventilation, an apron, filtered head gear and gloves (HAZ MAT Suit) when there is a possibility of ingestion, inhalation or absorbtion!
