ethos

Made OF Australia creates unique, modern, unglazed ceramic art for people who like to know that their money is being invested in quality & is contributing to both environmental & social sustainability. Unlike the manufacturers of the ubiquitous, chemical off-gassing, plastic or synthetic jewellery, homewares & souvenirs found in so many retail outlets, Made OF Australia practices & promotes more traditional, slow design techniques to create completely natural & thoughtfully produced items to cherish forever. Our hands-on techniques put substance, life & quality into every piece we make; so you can surround yourself with beautiful items without concern or cost to your health & values.

If you are seeking mass-produced, identical or production-line products, then we are definitely not for you; whilst we can produce large volumes (& indeed will create moulds of particular pieces upon request), we specialise in individual, handmade & precious pieces, as unique as the people who own them. Even when producing identical forms (plates/bowls etc.) to allow for safe stacking & storing in restaurants & homes, no two surface finishes can ever be the same, each one will have its own unrepeatable & peculiar qualities, as is the beauty of handmade designs & in particular, saggar firing.

Our ceramic works of art are fundamentally a physical manifestation of homage to Mother Earth. Every work of art we craft from her gifts of clay & organic materials is a tangible representation of her abundance & fertility, a reminder of what she is capable of & all that she has so give. We consider each of our ceramic pieces a celebration of our collective relationship with her & connectedness to each other. Each work of art is a symbol of our gratitude, made with utmost care & attention to detail for you to enjoy for years to come.

environment

At Made OF Australia we encourage both social & environmental sustainability via more traditional & community building design & manufacturing methodologies; producing our products in the most environmentally sustainable ways available to us & by reducing our emissions, materials & energy usage relentlessly. If ever we are unhappy with any of our processes, we create our own more responsible methods & practices (which is how our quartz sealer came about).

engagement

At Made OF Australia, being Australian means being part of a diverse community of people, & people (alongside the environment) will always be most important to us. With this in mind, we like to foster a culture of connectedness through art & we endeavour to work with as many different people as we can; to create long lasting relationships between diverse community members & encourage learning & understanding between the peoples of our world.

We engage artists, designers & partners of all ages, cultural backgrounds & walks of life to help us with our projects. If you would like more information about being involved in any of our upcoming creative projects, please email us.
