Colour is what attracts me to Brendan Adams ceramics! Bright and earthy but also intense and deep. Colours that remind you of the coast, shells and coral and the beauty of hues hidden under the rolling waves. Brendan has sent us some new pieces which are attracting a lot of attention; a big purple pot, beautiful functional bowls, alongside mugs and jugs that are unlike any other.
Brendan trained as a painter but fell in love with the ‘mud’ and hasn’t looked back! He completed a Diploma in Painting at Otago Polytechnic, but it was clay that he was drawn too for the possibilities it offered with form and texture.
Brendan has been making a living from his art since 1987 when he first opened a shop with his wife called Out of the Blue. They both now run the front room gallery in Auckland. Brendan has also been a lecturer at Auckland University and he also teaches at Auckland Studio Pottery Society.
