brendan adams nz potter, sculptor, clay and slip casting

Born in Auckland in 1961,Brendan has been making a living from clay since 1987.
With Kathryn his wife, he set up Out of the Blue, a shop in Kingsland, Auckland which they had for 10 years. Together they now run Brendan Adams Design from their home studio in Auckland.
Brendan has a diploma in Fine Arts from Otago Polytechnic, where he majored in painting. Brendan’s domestic ware is well recognised for its pacific colours, its easy going kiwi attitude
and inventiveness, he is also well known for his abstract and figurative sculpture.

His work has been exhibited throughout the country in major competitions and exhibitions where he has won several awards, and is represented in the Auckland Museum, James Wallace Trust and regional collections.
Brendan has amassed a large following of clientele who appreciate
his fine New Zealand ceramics and creative and unusual sculpture.

More recently his contemporary sculpture has seen him combine other materials with the ceramics such as steel, brass, alluminium and wood.


"Our relationship with interior and exterior spaces plays important part in the shaping of who we are.
In this show I have made a number of pieces from very small to larger wall pieces that investigate the relationships
of single figures and groups of figures in constructed landscape and architectural interiors.
I have used ceramic, wood and metal, combining the physical and graphic characteristics of the different materials
to achieve a spacial dialogue.

Putting parts together that make a whole, to tell a story. In this show I have endeavoured to create spaces in which people, buildings and objects are held, trapped. I have always loved the space and stillness in a de Chirico painting.

A place where time is halted. In making these works I hope to have created this sense of stillness and place."
