History of the Crock

The Ti-toki Liqueur ceramic crock is in the shape of a ‘tekoteko’, the carved figure typically found at the apex of the whare tipuna (ancestral house).


The iconic tekoteko crock was carved by maori carver Hemara Hemara in the late 1970’s and were originally produced by Crown Lynn.


During Crown Lynns production they made the crocks with numbering on the bottom with a date.  They were also made in a variety of colours.  These are now made in a 500ml tekoteko crock.
