A mythical Greek monster has joined the sculptural line-up in Whangarei.

The Northland National Potters Week Exhibition has been running at the Native Bush Court inside Forum North for 14 years.

Kristin Kay won for the second year in a row with Minotaur, a half-man, half-bull symbolising strength, brutality, protection and guardianship.

"I wanted to portray the feeling in this piece of movement, anger and readiness," Kay said.

The exhibition celebrates pottery crafted in the Northland region, in response to the amount of imported pottery flooding the New Zealand market.

Exhibition curator Susie Rogers said there were 30 pieces entered in this year's show, compared with last year's 18.

The council purchased the winning work to remain in the bush court permanently. WDC also bought Beubird a piece by Rogers.

The exhibition runs until October 25 at Forum North.
