Welcome to Temuka Pottery

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 changed – our pottery reflects modern
New Zealand, with clean designs created with bright
and colourful glazes.

individual needs. We understand the effort required to make a great kiwi business as we
have been doing it for over 80 years.
