The essence behind the brand name 'Author' is rooted in the profound significance of nostalgia, memories, and storytelling throughout my creative journey. During my upbringing, food served as a catalyst for crafting and reliving cherished memories. The walls adorned with unconventional artwork, and the iconic Temuka pottery assumed the role of our esteemed porcelain. When I reflect upon my childhood, these elements resonate most vividly in my mind. The art in our home is the story. I once stole flowers from my neighbours garden, filled a vase with warm water so the flowers didn’t get cold and placed them by my mum's bed. I will never forget the look on her face when she noticed them, she was so happy and that vase forever held happy memories. Our hope is that our ceramics are able to do the same for the families that own them.
