Temuka pottery was very popular in the 80s, when I went overseas, my friends asked me to buy some and take them to them.
From the township of Temuka, on the South Canterbury plains, since 1931,
New Zealand Insulators has proudly designed and produced Temuka Pottery.
Our 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.
