Pot lot - MT Pots

Handmade, unique, zany, yet affordable... this is how customers describe the works of art that emanate from the hands of Maggie Taylor. From pots and platters to bird baths, plaques and bowls, colour and character abound.

MT Pots

MT Pots

Maggie's long history of pot making turned commercial in 1997 when visitors expressed their desire to buy her creations. All works are created using a concrete mixer, shaped to the desired design and left to cure.

The final striking visual effects are achieved by combining Maggie's unashamed creative streak with Resene Lumbersider and an eclectic collection of finishing touches including the trademark use of sunglasses. Bright Resene colours, including favourites such as Resene Paua (bright purple), Tory Blue (bright blue) and Turbo (bright yellow), are used in abundance to offset the extroverted designs.

In this world of zany pots, bold is beautiful
