About the Artist

As the Crows Fly is a design business run by Bee Hayes in Fife, Scotland, specialising in handmade ceramics and illustrated home wares. ATCF produces both hand-thrown and slip cast porcelain ceramics with distinctive ranges incorporating botanical hand illustration, graphic midcentury modern glazed pieces and polished coloured vessels. Original, hand-drawn illustrations are also applied and fired in-house onto fine bone china wares, and made into tea towels, screen printed in the UK.

With a background in Fashion Design, designing for boutique London brand Whistles, followed by work as in-house graphic designer for an international NGO Bee has come to ceramics and home ware as an ideal medium with which to see the creative process through from initial idea to finished product. This allows for unlimited scope and freedom in product development and experimentation.

  1. I just christened my ‘limited edition’ Farnborough mug and what a grand cup of tea! Appropriately at the same time the four Breitling wingwalkers flew overhead en-route to their home base at Cirencester having completed their last display slot at Farnborough.

    I hope the show was a success for you.

  2. Admiring your ceramic willow tiles at the firestation this morning. They are absolutely beautiful. Do you have an online outlet for them?
    Thanks. Alison

    • Hi Alison, thanks 😊 They are actually a one off installation I made for an exhibition on endangered bee species. I don’t currently sell online but you are welcome to contact me at FSC if there’s anything you’re interested in. Bee
