Brett Stone is a well respected professional in the visual arts industry having worked at Rex Irwin Art Dealer for 25 years. In this role he has encouraged the blossoming of many emerging artist’s careers, and helped build many private collections. Realising he can’t draw, he has recently become a part time potter.
“Being around potters and their pots has taught me a great deal about life. Pots have taught me that the humble can be impressive and I have learnt to love the calm and contemplative process of making them. Living with handmade bowls makes you more aware of what you put in them. My bowls are functional, simple and unadorned – they want to be used. Stacking them comes naturally, it is how they live on the shelf.”
