Brian Gartside

Brian Gartside has been established on the NZ art scene for many years, firstly as a Teachers College Lecturer In Art and Ceramics and later as a successful and respected potter and clay artist. His work is widely collected and can be found in most of the art museum collections in New Zealand. Brian uses modern, technical methods with assistance from commercially prepared clays, minerals and special coloured pigments. His work is noted for his strong colourful images that reflect NZ, and is ever-changing and evolving - it's always exciting when he sends new work to see what themes and images he has been working on recently.
