Wali Hawes (1952-2014)

It is with great sadness that I have just heard from Wali’s sister that Wali lost his brave and determined battle against cancer on Monday 4th of August 2014. I did not know Wali all that well, but his charm and enthusiasm were infectious and I feel as many others will, a sense of personal loss. I knew him best from his construction of kilns (just one area of his many talents) – including the wonderful Dragon kiln and his ‘Fire Trees’. The humour and the excitement he brought to the ceramics world will be sadly missed and I offer my and studiopottery.co.uk’s condolences to Georgina, his wider family and all those who will miss him so much.

His 2013 you tube video clip is a wonderful example of his work. – You will be remembered Wali! Also Wali’s website can be found here
