what we do
Everything from the Australian clays to the foraged indigenous flora & waste from native fauna used in the firing of our ceramic art is derived directly from the unique Australian landscape. This means that each & every piece we make is not only made in Australia, but is literally Made OF Australia.
We forage for most of our ingredients throughout southern Queensland & northern New South Wales (on the East coast of Australia) & collect other organic materials from contributors all over the country. Using our signature Saggar Firing process to harness the elements of Earth, Water, Air, & Fire (& maybe a little Aether…) we create colour, pattern & texture on our ceramics using nothing more than the naturally occuring oxides & minerals in our ingredients. It is pure alchemy, & as such, no two Made OF Australia .
All our work is unglazed, including our tableware, but sealed with Liquid Quartz, a water based coating employing revolutionary technology to ensure food safety & stain resistance. So while our work looks & feels as raw & natural as Mother Nature herself, it’s also pretty high-tech.
As a business founded by non-indigenous Australians, we take great pride in both our personal heritage & in the ancient heritage of this beautiful country we call home. We remain mindful of the fact that the Earth from which we craft our works of art does not belong to us, nor indeed really to anyone, & we graciously acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land for their enduring & gentle care of their country over countless generations. We remain humbled by our collaborations with the oldest living culture on Earth, & we thank all our Aboriginal friends, those we know & those we haven’t met yet, for allowing us to be here. With great respect to tribal elders past, present patrons, & future leaders, thank you.
