" Pohutukawa Coast " was selected for the Taranaki Museum collection by guest exhibitor April Pearson after the New Plymouth Potters exhibition in 1992. Rea said the pot's name reflected memories of summer and the Northland east coast with the volcanic cliffs and the falling flowers from trees in bloom on a still early morning and the clear green waters of the bays, inlets and harbours. It was fired in the very first firing of the large new salt kiln built at Midhirst by Margaret Foley, Janet Smith and Bev Rea with the assistance of a Queen Elizabeth II grant.
