Submit ID request

There has been a recent increase in the number of pots submitted to for identification.

If you have a ceramic work that you cannot identify perhaps the combined knowledge of Ceramics NZ members could help.

Each submission in the pot identification forum can be accompanied by an image to illustrate the work. Submissions may be replied to and each reply may also include one image.

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.
