Potter’s Room

Matakana Village has become an arts and crafts centre on the Marhurangi Peninsula in Northland.  Surrounded by farmland and a growing number of vineyards,it has become  increasingly popular with holiday makers and weekenders from Auckland. In the basement area of the old Matakana Co-operative Dairy Factory there is a potter’s workshop.  Light from the windows picks up the warm colours of newly thrown and drying pots waiting to glazed and fired.  The ambiance of old timbers of the dairy factory, dust particles hanging in the air, and the aging concrete floor add atmosphere to the scene.
