Borrowed Earth

Handmade work with character that, over time, will become treasured family pieces.

Richie and Adele take pride in creating new ways to share their unique view of the world, honouring Their Māori, Pacific and English heritage.

Borrowed Earth started back in the 90s. Adele was between jobs when her Mum taught her how to pot and eventually the garage at home became her studio. Richie came along shortly after and became the other half to Borrowed Earth leaving his job as a telecommunication technician.

Now well established with a range of designs, the pair take pride in creating new ways to share their unique view of the world, honouring their Maori, Pacific and English heritage.

Borrowed Earth believe that all of us can make positive changes to the world by the choices we make everyday. They are committed to bringing you handmade work with character that, over time, will become treasured family pieces.

"We hope to inspire and uplift through our work. Passing inspiration and beauty from one person to another. Building a future based on balance, understanding, awareness and thoughtful consumption.
Surround yourself with what you love...
Ko maru kai atu
Ko maru kai mai ka ngohengohe
give as well as take and all is well"
