About Brick Bay

A labour of love since 1986, Brick Bay Farm has been ambitiously landscaped involving the creation of many attractive lakes, extensive tree plantings and the nurturing of Brick Bay Vineyard. Concurrently, a longstanding passion for sculpture and the desire to support New Zealand artists was given space to grow, leading to the realisation of Brick Bay Sculpture Trail.

About the Sculpture Trail

The unique Glass House building designed by Noel Lane is the gateway to Brick Bay Sculpture Trail. Here we invite you to begin a journey exploring the very best of contemporary New Zealand sculpture carefully selected by a curatorial panel.

Embark on a compelling outdoor gallery experience, where an ever-changing exhibition of around 45 sculptures by leading New Zealand artists are sensitively sited along the 2km trail. Experience sculpture framed by towering native trees and majestic palms, abundant birdlife and green pastures, overlooking the celebrated Brick Bay Vineyard.

Smaller works are to be found in our Shrunk courtyards, a perfect setting for their more intimate scale. All sculptures are for sale and change regularly as works are sold.

On your return to the Glass House, ponder the options of a wine tasting, coffee or a platter with a glass of wine.

We look forward to your visit and hope you enjoy a memorable day of art and wine entwined at Brick Bay.

About the Sculpture Trust

Supporting the Brick Bay Sculpture Trail, the Brick Bay Sculpture Trust has been established as a charitable trust, with revenue made available to assist selected artists in meeting the considerable expense of building outdoor work.

The Brick Bay Sculpture Trust philosophy is to make a significant contribution to New Zealand art by providing an exceptional setting for outdoor sculpture to be experienced and sold, while also offering the facilitation of public and private sculpture commissions.

'The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way’

 

Carved by hand and painted bright orange, the five glowing gates step up through the bush as living shrines leading to the giant Kauri. During the journey, visitors are encouraged to play the bells suspended above which progressively become higher and softer in tone.
