Rosemary O'Hara Pottery

I am producing my original design of 'Chicken Bricks' (Rommertoff's) or vege bakers, pizza stones, slipped terracotta cups and bowl, as well as Naked Raku pieces for exhibitions and galleries. I am still building up stock and intend to expand my range of cooking and dining ware in time.

I love the colours of earthenware clays and using slips and terra sigillatas. I am inspired by traditional making methods, coiling, burnishing, scraffito, folk art and the endless patterns of nature. I find it hard to take a walk on the beach or in the bush without coming home with half a dozen leaves, shells, stones, feathers, bits of bark for me to translate into my work.

I am currently selling my terracotta cooking ware at the Thorndon Farmers' Market in Hill St, Wellington, two Saturday mornings a month.

You can contact me at or ring/text me 021 201 6764. Visits to my Plimmerton studio are welcome by appointment.
