Unframed Print.

The inspiration for Tiki Lynn came to Anna Church when she was preparing the various pieces of Crown Lynn ceramics for the Crowning Glory piece. "Most of the pieces have no reference to New Zealand whatsoever back then there wasn't the attraction there is today to buy New Zealand made Crown Lynn had a multitude of various stamps to imprint each range.

One particular vase had a tiki stamped on the base " It was unashamedly kiwi and the only piece I found with that mark."
The bone-like qualities of the ceramic also tie in with the traditional Maori bone-carvings, with two Crown Lynn saucers the only use of coloured crockery providing an morepork-like gaze on the world. "It was when I saw the vase that is now the Tiki's tongue that I knew it could be done," "Tiki Lynn reclaims Crown Lynn pottery as distinctly New Zealand, because for years it wasn't marketed as a proud kiwi product."
