What happens when a leading New Zealand ceramist decides ''all you need is less''.

By John Perry in New Zealand on 02-Nov-2017 (exclusive to the Antiques Reporter)

Born in Holland in the Late 1940's Anneke Borren arrived in New Zealand in the early 1960's. Already a fledgling potter she quickly became well established in the strong ceramic scene in Wellington in particular but also New Zealand in general.

That she has decided to release her own significant holdings of her own journey through clay and that of her contemporaries is no mean feat.

From my own observations and experience it appears that the vast majority of artists have embedded in amongst the creative gene pool a number of those ''collector genes'' as part of their essential makeup.

To this end Cordy's auction house in Auckland held a 425 lot sale that was creatively divided into two parts: Anneke Borren The Maker and Anneke Borren The Collector.
