An announcement notes, "Brickell’s work, largely made of clay, is often composed of landscapes of objects. The markings take a journey around and sometimes through the vessels. Brickell compares this experience to that of experiencing a large landscape vista. 'Although the pots I create are intimate in scale, they borrow form the vastness of the landscape,' she said. These landscapes may reference the pastoral, the urban or the personal. 'These quickly rendered ceramic forms are visual representations of a memory of an object, rather than the actual object 1874itself; therefore, allowing the ambiguous forms to exist in a  murky space somewhere between the familiar and unfamiliar.' "

It adds, "Actively exhibiting both nationally and internationally, Brickell’s work can be found in Yingge Ceramics Museum, Taiwan, and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts, Texas. She has received numerous awards, among them a 2009 residency at Watershed Center for Ceramic Arts, Maine; a silver prize at the Taiwan Ceramics Biennale; and artist-in-residence, award 1, at the International Ceramic Research Center in Denmark."
