Museum Profile: Te Toi Uku Crown Lynn & Clayworks Museum
Te Toi Uku, which translates as ‘the art of clay’, is a small museum dedicated to the ceramics industry of West Auckland, in particular New Lynn. New Lynn was home to Crown Lynn whose products were in almost every New Zealand home and can still be found in baches and op shops nationwide, as well as in many private and public collections. It was a highly successful company which at its height in 1971 produced 400,000 pieces a week. Mainly due to pressure from cheap overseas imports, the company closed in 1989.
