  • Fantastic Rick, so great to see your pottery & other potters work included.
  • Quartz Museum is the place to experience New Zealand Ceramics. A huge collection spanning our historic potters and our contemporary artists. Fantastic also to be able to see Rick Rudd at work creating new pieces.
  • This is such a great place and a joy to spend time with the owner. Thankyou
  • A fantastic museum, showing a great retrospective of the proprietor's work (Rick Rudd) as well as a comprehensive and diverse selection of other New Zealand ceramic works. Rick is a generous host - he'll answer any questions you have and explain the collection, and you can even see him work on his studio.
  • An excellent ceramics gallery showing new and old works. Rick Rudd has done a great job in collecting and displaying his and other fine works. The gallery is a couple of blocks off the main thoroughfare but a must see.
