Marc Vigor Brown
Mark was born in 1957 and was a popular local jeweller, and Napier character.
“Following study of Architecture at Auckland University I became immersed on a full-time basis with ceramic design. National success and recognition in the field of studio pottery was followed by an interest in the field of contemporary jewellery and precious metals. My interest in jewellery was given incentive when looking for jewellery to purchase. I realized there were areas of design that had not been explored. Inspiration for my work comes by the magic and beauty that permeates the every-day worlds. I look at my immediate environment for imagery. Both urban-found objects as well as those found in nature play a part in my work."
Mark passed away in 2016.
