Biographical Display
Cameron and Dorothy Brown established a small pottery in Waitakere, West Auckland in 1951. At first called Sherwood Pottery, and then, from around 1957, Titian Studio, the Browns created a number of decorative vases and Toby jugs.

They moved the pottery to Henderson in 1958 and began experimenting with a wide range of decorative glazes for their wares. After yet another move in 1965, this time to Takanini, the company was taken over by Crown Lynn in 1967 and the Browns set up another pottery, Orzel Industries in 1972.

Although some of Titian’s designs are based on British equivalents, many have unique Kiwi aspects that make them keenly sought by collectors.
