Morris and James is a 'must visit' whenever I visit Matakana. Beautiful range of pots to admire and maybe even purchase. This free tour is very interesting and there is a cafe to finish off your visit with lunch or afternoon tea- or both :)

This place has some beautiful pottery. I just loved the colourful plant pots and had made tiles. They also have a children's play area and a nice wee cafe. They also do a free tour every morning at I think 11.30.

Good quality pottery, especially as that was a range of seconds in the products we were interested in.

We enjoyed the displays, products, creative, and the generosity of the owner to allow visitors to get into the insightful site. Food at cafe was awesome from light to fine dining was fabulous. Thanks for the hospitality offered.
