Each shape has been designed and made by hand, the original piece is then moulded for production. This process allows each piece to keep the uniqueness of handmade crockery. This product is vitrified at over 1200ºC with the usual benefits of edge strength and chip resistance.
Temuka's artisans apply the glazes by hand creating the layered and textured effects. These designs are not only just reflective of the current fashion but they are the trend setters themselves without compromising on the quality of the ceramics themselves.
Potter's Mark - This contemporary dinner ware collection echoes the way the potter's hand moves over the clay to form the work. Potter's Mark, first released in 2017, is a collection of dinnerware with a true connection to the potter. Styled with spiralling finger marks on the clay's surface these works are faithfully reproduced keeping that handcrafted feel.
Leather is a craftsman's glaze designed to complement the Potter's Mark Collection.
You will find evidence of the craftsman's touch. There are hold points with glaze textures moving by. The runs and pools of the glaze as they fall over the shapes give wild variations in texture and form. The palette of colours in Leather gives rich bases that present as darkest lichen green, luxurious chocolate and warm charcoal. We see coffee colours in the highlights.
The range is fully commercial - vitrified with edge strength chip resistance, heat retention, and resistance to dishwasher chemicals and oven heat, so is well suited for the food service industry (cafes, restaurants, bars and more).
