CRAIG David, Gregory O'Brien, Hamish Keith 
His Own Steam
The Work of Barry Brickell
cover image of His Own Steam: The Work of Barry Brickell, for sale in New Zealand

The work of potter, artist, craftsperson, railway enthusiast and iconoclast Barry Brickell.
Essays by David Craig and Gregory O'Brien and with both newly commissioned photographs by Haru Sameshima and historic images.
An essay by David Craig sketches out Brickell's history and career, then takes us through crucial themes, preoccupations and forms in his work, from sustaining domesticware to the influences of the medieval grotesque and Pacific and Sepik motifs; from realistic murals to bodily 'morphs'.
Brickell's personal preoccupations with energy and engineering, the body and conservation, are made clear.
His most well-known forms, for example, the 'spiromorphs', are large-scale spiral creations built from coiled clay, which twist and unfold in curves that parallel the spirals of his railway.
