Lil Ceramics x Amano

Lil Ceramics x Amano

We have an ongoing custom serveware relationship with Amano, designing various plates and serving pieces.

Our latest collaboration is currently at the design phase, working with Amano's Manager Jonathon, deciding on custom glaze colours and bowl/ plate forms. Lily has provided a variety of options from the initial conversation that can be tweaked further. Glimpse a snapshot of this process below:

Amano is about sharing our passion for food with our guests. It’s about staying true to our belief in provenance and sharing only seasonal, sustainable and local produce from New Zealand growers and farmers.

It's about humble, attentive service delivering rustic, Italian-inspired fare. It's about providing a space for you to feel relaxed and connected to your food and its origin.

Situated opposite Auckland’s dazzling Waitemata Harbour and spanning Britomart’s historic Altrans and Quay buildings, our bakery and restaurant, are now part of the rich history of this beautiful site.
