HAYLEY Coulthard

Joining the Hermannsburg Potters in 2009, Hayley Coulthard developed her raw natural talent under the mentorship of senior Potters Judith Inkamala, Kwementyaye Ungwanaka and her mother Anita Ratara. Now a mid-career artist and strong leader of the Hermannsburg Potters, Hayley Coulthard is known for producing work of both a high technical standard and of artistic merit. Hayley has participated in more than 50 group exhibitions in Australia and overseas Hayley's work is held in many public and private collections. Hayley Coulthard is also renowned for her delightful AFL footy pots, her work St Kilda versus Collingwood being acquired by the Art Gallery of South Australia in 2011. She has since gone on to be a part of the significant 2016 National Gallery of Victoria exhibition Our Land is Alive - Hermannsburg Potters for Kids, where twenty AFL-themed pots were commissioned to tell the story of the game's history, particularly as it has unfolded in the footy fanatic community of Hermannsburg. Hayley is a dedicated Art Worker at Hermannsburg Potters and is the incoming Chair for Hermannsburg Potters, stepping up to the leadership role for 2022. Hayley also currently sits on the Desart Incorporated Board.
