Ceramic Logan Campbells!

In 1840 Logan Campbell arrived in Auckland which was then capital of New Zealand. Tāmaki Makau Rau, the bride sought by a hundred suitors,  a natural choice! He was one of the first Europeans to settle in the area and built the first house and opened the first shop.

Campbell is now known as 'the father of Auckland'.

So to say Happy Birthday to our city we've asked the very talented maker of our Captain Cooks, local artist Helen Adams , to make some Logan Campbells. Here they are, a band of wonderful Campbells all ready to hold your treasures.

These guys won't make it to the website so if you are out of town but would like one, please phone the shop on 09 366 7282. Thank you!
