With the demise of Crown Lynn New Zealand no longer has an industrial scale pottery industry. Its products have now become 'collectables'. However in the sixties and seventies individuals developed a vigorous interest in pottery reflecting lifestyle choices by people influenced by the environmental movement thinking of the time; epitomised by the move to communes and the Whole Earth Catalogue. A number of professional studio potters became established including Len Castle, Doreen Blumhardt , Yvonne Rust, Mirek Smisek and Barry Brickell. Interest in pottery as a craft and art form continues with the annual Portage Ceramic Awards, New Zealand's premier ceramics event being administered by the Te Uru Waitakere Contemporary Gallery .
