This small collection of pots from around the world is largely a result of Rick Rudd meeting the makers. He purchased many pots while visiting their countries of origin. Some have been purchased from the potters while visiting this country. The Shoji Hamada yunomi was purchased second hand in Aotearoa New Zealand and one of the Lucie Rie bottle forms was very generously given to Rick.
The library includes many New Zealand pottery books, magazines and catalogues, the complete collection of the New Zealand Potter magazine, all the Fletcher and Portage catalogues and many overseas books and publications.
The Rick Rudd archive includes catalogues and ephemera relating to his work and career from 1969 to the present day.
