Brendan Adams New Zealand Ceramics and Pottery

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. Brendan teaches at the Auckland Studio Potter Society. He has also been a lecturer at Auckland's Unitec. Check out a visit to Brendan's studio here
