Reef Kōtuku Endangered Jug - Small

We are thrilled to celebrate our rare native birds in a special collaboration with Bob Steiner. Kōtuku are rare solitary birds, located in the shallow waters along the margins of rivers, inland lakes, swamps and coastal estuaries. Incredibly elegant, they lift themselves off into flight, the wings flapping slowly and purposefully. In Maori oratory, the most telling compliment is to liken someone to Kōtuku. It symbolizes everything rare and beautiful. All jugs are hand made from clay and fired in a kiln. Jugs are food safe, please hand wash.

Kōtuku jug measures 10x8cm
