Upcoming Exhibition in our Front Room Gallery

Nicky%20Jolly%20Centred%20Grey

Coming up next in our Front Room Gallery is the wonderful Nicky Jolly, she is creating work for an exhibition in October. Potter Nicky Jolly makes sculptural and functional pots that enhance everyday living. With glazes that complement the clay form and set off the food. Nicky has been crafting original handcrafted pottery for 39 years.

Now living in Kerikeri, she was a long time member of the Auckland pottery scene. People may remember her work at “Pots of Ponsonby” and the Titirangi market.

"It's been 12 years since I had a solo show...Working for a show instead of craft markets has been therapeutic and I am surprised at my direction.
Potters may be interested in (or disgusted by) my fake ash, wood and celadon glazes (must be missing those firings), and teapots! When did I last make one of those. Also lots of birds.
The exhibition is called "Centred". I centre the clay and the clay centres me." I have been hand building and throwing on the wheel, sometimes a combination of both.”

Acoustic Ceramic

Over the last few years Brendan has been investigating and combining electronic componentry with ceramic design.

With these pieces I aimed to make functional objects that made sound. The limitless possibilities of hand formed ceramics lends itself to investigating unique shapes for this project. In the design and making of these pieces I felt the interaction with the user is important feature, (twiddling the ceramic knobs and flicking the switches). The open ceramic body had the added advantage of good acoustic qualities. I relished the challenge of combining the oldest technologies with the most modern.

Soda Firing

This page features work that Brendan has fired in his soda kiln.
Designed by Peter Lange, Brendan built the kiln in our backyard with Thomas Blackstock.

Initally it was challenging to fire the kiln using lots of gas so it would get up to temperature, 1200 ºc. By the 3rd firing they think they have it sussed.

These works are in our Front Room Gallery now.

Navigating Everyday Spaces

An Exhibition by Brendan Adams

Brendan has been hard at work over the last few months finishing these sculptural pieces. It is his first major show since the "Passing Landscape" exhibition in 2015.

"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."

The main material will be ceramic with the inclusion of wood and metal combining the physical and graphic characteristics of the different materials to achieve a spacial dialogue.
