Crown Lynn: A Māori Story is a riveting slice of New Zealand history, telling the iconic story of Crown Lynn pottery and the generations of Māori families that worked there.

For almost 50 years, Crown Lynn was the biggest ceramics factory in the southern hemisphere.

Situated in West Auckland, it was a melting pot of rich culture in a post-war era when hundreds of Māori migrated to the city to find work. Crown Lynn: A Māori Story reveals the incredible stories behind this locally made pottery and its charismatic founder, Sir Tom Clark.
