The real deal

With a background in illustration and floristry, a Bachelor of Fine Arts majoring in sculpture and natural talent as a potter, Kirsten Dryburgh is not short on skills. But she doesn’t let that go to her head – her Brueghel range of hand-thrown domesticware (in a special blend of clays including raku high-fired for a lovely toast-like texture) is produced in a rustic shed in her Auckland backyard.
