Mud Australia designs hand-made, beautifully simple yet deceptively intricate, porcelain homewares for everyday household use. The collections are designed to emphasise the durability and finesse of the material, rather than letting the design take over.
Each piece is fashioned from an indistinguishable chunk of 'mud' into fine piece of art by a pair of skilled hands in Mud Australia’s Sydney studio. The light, bright Gertrude Street store is filled with delicate teacups, pretty plates, bowls and beautiful jugs, laid out on almost every surface available. Scattered throughout are Chilewich teaspoons and Kobo candles radiating delicate scents as you move throughout the store.
The products come in a range of exciting colours and styles, with new shapes and hues added seasonally. To create the varying depths of colour, pigment is tinted in the porcelain at the slip stage, ensuring consistency throughout the pieces. A clear glaze is applied to the interior of each piece, creating a smooth glassy finish but leaving the exterior with a rough stone-like surface that becomes smooth with handling and use.
The end result is a piece that combines a minimalist aesthetic with a clearly handmade finish. Each piece is microwave, dishwasher and oven friendly – truly made for everyday use in the modern household.
