About us

Talisman is a manufacturing and wholesaling business on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand. We make equipment for the pottery and ceramics industries including the famous Talisman Rotary Sieve™, hand sieves, test sieves, and interchangeable and replaceable Talisman sieve screens that can be used in both the rotary and hand sieve products.

Our sieving products are used for preparing and sieving glazes and slips, and also for sifting dry materials.

As well as sieves we also make a range of small, medium and large raku tongs for raku firing; glazing woks in a range of sizes. We are always researching and developing new products in response to our customers needs.

Talisman has been crafting high quality hand made equipment for pottery and ceramics in New Zealand since the 1960s. We know that potters like to use quality hand crafted equipment that lasts, and our products are practical and exceptionally durable. We know of customers that bought their Talisman Rotary Sieve over 30 years ago and are still using it today!

Our products are showcased in the Products section of this site. We partner with distributors and retailers around the world to supply our products to their customers. If you would like to know where you can buy Talisman products from in your area, or are interested in becoming a distributor or reseller of Talisman products, please contact us.
