Sculpture, by Mick Brettle

This earthenware sculpture was made by the Scottish artist Mick Brettle in 1984. The sculpture was inspired by the artist's interest in World War I planes and post war 'tin toys'.

The sculpture in the shape of a biplane was made with aerographed slips, glaze and enamel, and then brushed metallic lustre.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
