Kermiko Potteries (1984) Ltd operated at 42 Henderson Vallery Road, Henderson.
In 1993 they called themselves Kermiko Stoneware and had an advert in the Yellow Pages saying they made a full range of kitchenware terracotta and promotional products - custom work manufactured to your requirements.
It looks like they were in business from around 1984 until at least 1997
Good quality slip cast ware. There is no foot ring - just a flat base.

Kermiko Potteries Empty Kermiko advertorial

Post  Glenys Tue 29 Jan - 21:20

I've seen heaps of those pots and didn't know the maker because the sticker was missing. The pattern is very distinctive.
I found this cute little jug today in the South Island of course. Shaw's Berry Farm is at Riverhead, only a few km from our home!

From the similarities between a jug I saw today at the Sallies, bearing a Kermiko sticker, and the adjacent Royal Oak mugs, jugs and bowls, I have formed the opinion that Kermiko is a reincarnation of Royal Oak Potteries, and yet another chapter in the Owen Salisbury-Royal Oak saga I have written about under the Royal Oak heading.

I also see the 'Original Earthenware Colonial Range' advertised as Stewart Pottery:

Stewart pottery owner was Stewart Salisbury, son of Owen Salisbury. Please do a search for Stewart potteries and you should find heaps of info that will interest you.

Kermiko Potteries Empty Kermiko identification

Post  Maryr Fri 4 Oct - 12:29

Having another go at posting my three little Kermiko things... three different types of identification!
This is a Kermiko milo jar, it looks a bit like terracotta but that's the glaze. It has Kermiko on the printed label - along with Geo Saxby and Son - wonder who they were?

This is the same jar with a floral decoration and a sticker - rather randomly placed.

And this little mug has Kermiko marked on the base...

Not sure what all this means. I have been so focused on Crown Lynn that I didn't even know Kermiko existed until recently

oOOOOoooo haven't seen that Kermiko stamped on the base before Very Happy:D
I believe there were at least two owners of this company and things changed a bit due to that.  I haven't seen a footring on any of their work before. Hopefully we will get the full story one day.  I really like their pottery !!

My wife Joy and I started Kermiko around 1980 producing slip casts stoneware. We sold it many years later to Burke Steel. We were located in Henderson close to Royal Oak potteries.
