Creating Stories in Clay

We believe that each piece piece we create tells a story. Whether it's a small finger dent from making it, lines from where it has spun on a wheel, or drippy lines from where the pieces has been hand dipped in glaze. We like to show human intention in our pieces, therefore each one tells it's own beautiful story of how it was created. 

 

Our pieces are simple in form, utilitarian and design focused. It's then finished or glazed with emotive connotations. I like it to be deliberate and full of movement; adding contrast to the piece and bringing it to life.

Whether it be fired with electricity or with flame, we make pieces that have human connection and love it when they are used in your day to day life. We feel incredibly privileged to work with a beautiful natural material and turn it into functional art.

Holly Morgan learnt her craft while living in Whangamata, she worked underneath potter Andrew Killick for a year. She then worked for a year from home in her car port during the warmer parts of the year, and then set up a container in town to throw in winter. Late 2019 she took on the lease for her Market St studio, and has been growing and evolving ever since. 

Her work is an evolving landscape, the beginning years dedicated to refining her style and form. To now introducing new colour palettes and techniques that make her clean aesthetics rich in surface and full of thoughtful design.
