Pottery from Temuka

Pottery from Temuka

Temuka Pottery was the only large-scale domestic producer of table, oven and kitchenware in the early 2000s. The pieces shown here were produced over many decades. The oldest is the green jug, which is fitted with an electric element. The brown pieces date from the 1970s, while the more colourful ware is from the 1990s and early 2000s.
