Barry Brickell
large sculptural bottle, wood-fired salt-glazed, late 1990s. 380 x 430 x 525. A.B.: "My Bent Barry" - "Barry Brickell was annoyed by the slumping of this piece, the front wall of the upright shape (was) not strong enough, and too close to the (kiln) stoke hole, nevertheless he exhibited it in his solo show at the N.Z. Academy of Fine Arts, in Wellington, in the early 2000s. He recognised its beauty, which I totally agree with, when I bought it. It is therefore entirely unique."

A large clay jar (olla) from the Amazon Shipibo people (Peru)
maze-like geometric painted surface decoration, collected 1977, 165 x 280. A.B.: "The Shibipo pots were bought from the Peruvian villagers, who made them, when we were travelling the whole of the Amazon river length, in 1977-788. Their language became " hieroglyphic " within their images, their brushes the chewed ends of small branches. They are now mass produced for the international market, thereby losing their meaning, and precision care. The price of maintaining one s integrity."

Robert Franken
'The Onlooker', oil on canvas 1986. 1110 x 1220. A.B.: "Robert Franken's painting career runs parallel to mine in clay, in its timing. (We are) both Dutch immigrants from the 1960s. His work is well known in Japan, and the Netherlands, but less noticed by the New Zealand public. His world is his own; unique and imaginative, no matter where he lives, but it relates through the generations to Hieronymus Bosch."
