Since 1931, from the township of Temuka, on the South Canterbury plains, Temuka Pottery has proudly been designed and produced. The brand is pure New Zealand heritage – and thousands of kiwi households use Temuka Pottery on a daily basis. It lasts and lasts. Many New Zealanders know Temuka Pottery as the curvy brown Riverstone series designed by the late Jack Laird of Nelson. Launched in 1971, the beautiful Riverstone sold millions of pieces. Since then Temuka Pottery has developed and evolved – our pottery reflects modern
New Zealand, with clean designs created with bright and colourful glazes.
Temuka Pottery is immensely proud of its history, and as the only commercial pottery manufacturer in New Zealand we look forward to a strong future. We like to share our enthusiasm for ceramics, and we are more than happy for you to contact us with any comments or thoughts you may have.
