At age 14, when most teen boys would be more into playing sports or fixing cars, Barry Brickell had a knack for creating pottery. After becoming a teacher, Barry worked for less than a year before beginning his pottery business, Driving Creek Potteries. After a while, Barry focused on another one of his passions—railways—and invested money into a functioning railway on his property in Coromandel, New Zealand. Today, Barry employs four railway engineers and continues to make pottery.
