Welcome to the NZP tableware exhibition 2017

Trends come and go but the demand for more interesting tableware reflects a new-found respect for artisanal craftsmanship. Presentation of food is so important and the tactility of a handmade plate only adds to a dish. Five years ago, when writing about a restaurant, the crockery would be noticed and perhaps mentioned but now close attention is paid not only to the food but to the potter and designer of the plates. New Zealand Potters biennial tableware exhibition was a staple of the Christchurch ceramic calendar.

This year Wellington is hosting the exhibition. New Zealand Potters has secured an award for an article in Dish, a bi-monthly magazine for people who love food. For the recipient, this will be a great opportunity to showcase their work. Another exciting addit ion to the awards is the Development Award, for a week’s professional development residency at Collis studio.

Gordon Harris is supporting our merit award with a $200 materials voucher. We would like to thank our sponsors this year for their generous support.

I would like to thank the Pataka staff for curating the exhibition, Janet Smith for the difficult task of selector, Aimee for all the work putting the exhibition together and to all the potters who submitted work, while sometimes work doesn’t make it through to the final selection, this is the opportunity to learn, re-evaluate and have another go next year.

Ceramics NZ


Registered as an incorporated society in 1965 by an enthusiastic group of potters in Wellington, New Zealand, Ceramics NZ has grown to become a significant international voice in New Zealand ceramics. The affiliation of about three dozen independent pottery clubs throughout New Zealand together with a number of corporate businesses greatly increases its effective membership. We are a national, not-for-profit organisation representing the interests of practising potters and ceramicists, students of ceramics and all those interested in New Zealand ceramics. We actively support and promote quality, and we encourage and support specialist ceramics education nationally.
