About Us

Welcome to Potteryworld – Where Tradition Meets Quality!
Our story begins with Pennys' Place in 1978, a dream brought to life by our visionary founders, Tom and Penny Leighs. With a keen eye for the evolving market, they recognized the untapped potential of pottery. Their passion led to the creation of a wide range of top-quality products designed to enrich households across Canterbury. As Pennys' Place flourished, the invaluable support of their children – Mark, Jenny, and Tom – became instrumental. Together, they embarked on a journey of expansion and evolution. This growth prompted a rebranding to Potteryworld, coinciding with our global quest for the finest pots and products. We scoured the world, forging partnerships with the best suppliers to ensure the highest quality for our customers. Today, Potteryworld stands as a testament to the enduring legacy of the Leighs family. Mark, alongside his dedicated business partners Jak & Zaan, continue the legacy laid down by Penny and Tom. As a family-driven enterprise, our mission remains unchanged – to explore the globe, curating the finest products not just for Christchurch but for the entire nation. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has contributed to Potteryworld's success. Your support has been pivotal as we navigate the path to a promising future. For the most exceptional pottery deals in town, we invite you to experience the Potteryworld difference. Come visit us today and discover the perfect blend of tradition, quality, and unmatched service.
