Owner Chrissy Purdom

Hello and welcome to my website.

Having previously been a potter for over 20 years, I headed back into my pottery workshop in 2020, after owning & running Omaha Living for 18 years. Once again in my workshop, I got to re-discovered the joy of having an idea and creating it into something you could use and enjoy everyday.

I'd also broken the last of my own handmade mugs and desperately needed more!

Omaha Beach

In my workshop you will find me throwing the clay on the pottery wheel, making mugs, bowls and dishes and taking them through to the final glazing & firing stages. My dishes are designed to suit a variety of menu styles so we can all enjoy our favourite recipes at meal times.

I've recently been using a hand-building technique to produce a new range of platters called the Coastal Range. This range is rapidly expanding so watch this website to see the new ideas being produced!

Check out the Stockists Page to find where more of my work is sold or pop along to visit me on a Sunday at the new Matakana Country Park Market.
