The Pukeko Large Triangle Plate is one of the more popular designs from Splashy. The Pukeko is one of New Zealand’s favourite birds and is often referred to as a ‘blue chicken’ because of its distinctive blue feathers and brilliant red beak.

This colourful plate is hand painted by Splashy’s own inhouse artists who are given creative liberties to come up with their own designs. Splashy uses their own special paint that is formulated according to a secret recipe. This gives their products bright and unique colours that are hard to find elsewhere. Splashy products also undergo three blast cycles that make them durable, microvave and dishwasher safe.

How the Splashy Large Triangle Plate is made:

  • Soft clay is poured into the plate mould.
  • As the clay hardens it is fettled with a damp sponge.
  • When the clay has hardened enough to be handled it is considered ‘greenware’.
  • The greenware is blasted in a bisque kiln for six to seven hours at 900 degrees Celsius.
  • When it has cooled down it is ready to be painted.
  • Splashy’s dedicated team of artists then apply their secret paints to the plate.
  • Once the hand painting process is complete it is again blasted in a bisque kiln at 900 degrees Celsius.
  • After the blast process in the bisque kiln it is placed in a glazing kiln to be blasted at 1160 degrees Celsius.
  • There is then a final inspection to rule out any cracks or faults.

The entire manufacturing process can take up to several days and produces a plate that is durable, dishwasher and microwave safe. The colourful Pukeko Large Triangle Plate would make a brilliant Mother’s Day gift, Birthday gift, Christmas gift or a practical home décor piece to serve up a storm!
