history

Made OF Australia is a concept first conceived directly at the potter’s wheel by artist & designer Anna-Marie Wallace. While learning to throw with her first mentor, master potter Ray Outteridge, she realised that the work she was creating was literally a piece of Australia, formed from Australian Earth & then fired with native flora & waste from indigenous fauna. After several months of refining the concept, in September 2012 Made OF Australia was officially founded & for the first 6 months worked out of a community studio with rented equipment & space with the help of a RADF grant (Regional Arts Development Fund). From these humble beginnings Made OF Australia began its evolution; from making buttons & decorative ware, to now producing unique & coveted tableware for some of Australia’s (& the world’s) best restaurants.

location

Made OF Australia currently operates from Anna-Marie’s home studio & workshop space in regional Goonengerry, on 18 acres of Big Scrub conservation land, nestled in the hinterland at the foothills of Nightcap National Park, just 35 minutes inland from Byron Bay, New South Wales, on the beautiful east coast of Australia. The studio is not open to the public daily, as we are often up to our elbows in mud & can’t stop to serve you, so please get in touch to make an appointment if you’d like to come & choose your pieces in person. Our humble gallery has cash & credit card facilities. hello@madeofaustralia.com
