Barry Brickell: My Last Ever Pottery Sale?
July 12, 2014 @ 2:00 pm - July 31, 2014 @ 3:00 pm
Opening in the Small Dog Gallery
Saturday 12 July 2 – 3.30pm
The Depot Artspace is proud to host iconic New Zealand potter Barry Brickell’s only, and possibly last, Auckland exhibition of domestic ware. Including pots, plates, mugs and jugs (his noted Fatsos are already in demand), along with a number of sculptural pieces (erectures). This show coincides with Barry’s stay at the Michael King Writers’ Centre in Devonport, his childhood home, where he will be taking time away from Driving Creek in the Coromandel to work on his writing projects.
You can find out more about Barry, his life, philosophy and prodigious works as a potter, painter, kiln-maker, engineer, railway enthusiast, conservationist and writer on www.culturalicons.co.nz
“After 40 years of churning out pottery for sale, I now prefer to make it by commission which is much more personal as with my erectures (built-up sculptures).” – Barry Brickell
