Hi, my name is Gill - I'm a mother to 3 who loves to create. I make originally designed handcrafted Ceramic pieces from NZ clays. I love to use antique and vintage tools to create my pieces, the more offbeat the better. I'm currently working in the Residents' area at The Exchange / 376 Wilsons Rd. Come down, grab a coffee and come have a chat.

I started making ceramics in 2008, selling in local markets in 2010, and in July 2011 I launched a new range of ceramics made with silt and white clay to commemorate the Christchurch Earthquakes,
Take a look in my shop to see the EMERGE range, or email if you have any questions - mudbird@gill.co.nz

Please also have a look at my Instagram @mudbird_ceramics where I update it often with photographs of all my work.

I am more than happy to ship worldwide - please contact me for a quote and time frame you require it in and I can work it out. All items are very well packaged and wrapped.
All items sent within New Zealand can be either couriered or sent via NZ Post.

Mudbird products are made with quality in mind and in small batches, so you can be assured your piece has been lovingly created. New Zealand clay has been used. Please care for your pieces gently.
