Brett Stone

ARTIST STATEMENT

Brett Stone started his art career during the heady days of the mineral boom in Perth in the mid 1980s. Lured to Sydney by Rex Irwin in 1987, he worked with him until 2016. He is now a consultant curator at Utopia Art Sydney. In this career he has encouraged the blossoming of many emerging artist's careers, and helped build many private collections. 

Mid-life, Brett has become a 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."
