Hello.
I am Japanese who was a student in NZ about 15 years ago.
There I fell in love with Christine Harris and brought back some of her works to Japan.
They've been with me since then, however, the other night, my husband accidentally knocked the tea pot and broke the lid.
I am not mad at him but I just kind miss it. I wonder... do they still sell Christine Harris like they used to? Christine Harris is the only pottery that I like so much.

I remember buying them in a shopping center in Hamilton.
I also remember seeing a lovely pottery shop with lots of them displayed in Auckland.
Since I haven't had any chance to go back to NZ, I wonder if they are still avalabile on stores...
Do you think I ever can buy them if I go visit NZ?
It's impossible to buy on the net from Japan, yeah?

Somewhere I read she is not making the pottery anymore.
Is that right?
Is there anyway that I could write to her? Just to tell her how much I love her works.
THANKS!

Hi chicat - welcome to the forum Smile
Christine Harris pottery is still very popular, even though she doesn't make it any more.
Here are the current listings for her work on a New Zealand online auction site for you to look at, as this is the only way I can think of that you can find her work.

I'm not sure how you would go about buying off that site from Japan .....?
Maybe someone else can help?
No idea how to contact her either sorry, but maybe somebody else does .....?

Yes you might be able to get a replacement but the cost of the postage is expensive and maybe not worth it email phillipa@studioceramics.co.nz If you can send a picture and measure the size of the teapot she may be able to help.
