A Pukeko in your garden!

The Pukeko is a much loved New Zealand bird and easily recognisable with its distinctive red beak and blue feathers. Celebrate this popular New Zealand bird with the Splashy Ceramic Pukeko. This ceramic display piece sits on two red metal stilts that serve as its legs and can be secured with sand, soil or stones. Give it the pride of place in your home or garden. 

Splashy’s Ceramic Pukeko is hand painted and finished by a team of talented artists. They employ special paints made according to Splashy’s own secret recipe. This gives their works of art a distinctive bright tone and character.

How the Splashy Ceramic Pukeko is made:

  • Soft clay is put into a mould and left to set
  • When the soft clay hardens slightly it is gently fettled with a damp sponge
  • The clay then hardens and becomes ‘greenware’
  • The greenware is then blasted in a bisque kiln for six to seven hours at 900 degrees Celsius.
  • Splashy artists then apply their secret paints to the product
  • After painting it is again blasted in the bisque kiln
  • This is followed by further blasting in the glazing kiln at 1160 degrees
  • The product is then inspected for any faults

Splashy can spend several days to produce a single item. This makes their products highly durable and, as they are individually hand finished, gives them a unique personality. Decorated your home or garden with the Distinctive Ceramic Pukeko by Splashy.
