Vessel stocks domestic ware from New Zealand’s leading ceramic artists, artisans and small manufacturers. Every product has been chosen for its usefulness, quality and value. The emphasis is on studio ceramics for the kitchen, the table and around the home – complete sets as well as individual pieces. These are the contemporary handmade objects that will bring life and warmth into today’s stainless steel kitchen.

The homeware at Vessel includes a range of screen printed tea towels and cushions. 

Handmade and designed objects from around the world


Our range of New Zealand made items is complemented by a selection of handmade and designed objects from around the world.

From Scandinavia, a selection of essential designed goods – including Marimekko and Iittala (Finland), Ester & Eric candles and items from Menu and Essey (Denmark), Klippan (Sweden) and Rob Brandt (Netherlands).

Mats for the table and the floor are among the products we import from highly regarded New York industrial designer, Sandy Chilewich. 

Sterling silver jewellery by ex-pat Wellingtonian Sarah Herriot (now a Londoner), features alongside the popular Chan Luu wrap bracelets. And you'll be amazed by the unique handmade jewellery and scarves by Parisian fabric artist Sophie Digard.

Also from France – Nontron knives, that country's oldest pocket knives.
