Everything from the Australian clays to the foraged indigenous flora used in the firing of these ceramics from Made of Australia is derived directly from the unique Australian landscape. This means that each & every piece is not only made in Australia, by Australians, but is literally a piece of Australia.
Anne-Marie and her team forage for indigenous flora & waste from native Australian fauna throughout southern Queensland & northern New South Wales (on the East coast of Australia) harnessing their natural compounds to create colour, pattern & texture on their ceramic. They use their signature Saggar Firing process, meaning that no two Made OF Australia works of art are alike, each being as unique & individual as you are.
Ram pressed & perfectly formed, these highly functional pieces are extremely practical & stackable; perfect for high usage situations like restaurants & cafés. Each bowl is unique despite their consistent shape, as each surface tells a different story. Every plate & bowl will showcase unrepeatable markings & patterns that change depending on the variables at the final firing; atmospheric conditions, ingredients used, time of year, all play a part in the alchemy that is saggar firing. Every piece will have a personality of its own. These pieces team perfectly with the slip cast bowl range.
All our unglazed “naked” ceramics are crafted from Australian clays & saggar fired with our signature process; utilising foraged native Australian organic materials & waste from indigenous flora & fauna to create unique & unrepeatable surface finishes that speak of the Australian earth.
These vessels have been coated with a water-based quartz sealer (otherwise known as silicon dioxide or SiO2) that inhibits the growth of mould, algae & scale, repels water & other liquids, & minimises the staining caused by fats, acids & alkalis. This revolutionary sealer creates an invisible barrier between the ceramic surface & the food upon it, is thermal shock resistant & so is commercial dishwasher, microwave & oven safe up to 450°C. There is no need for harsh commercial detergents when cleaning, in fact reducing contact with solvents, abrasives & chemicals will prolong the life of the coating. It is highly scratch resistant & has been tested for food safety compliance to German food safety standards. These unglazed vessels are the first of their kind, the only unglazed food-safe ceramic ware on the market.
Please note that each ceramic piece is unique. Images on our website are indicative only and may vary from the individual pieces we have in stock. If you have a preference (eg. lighter or darker tones) please leave us a message at checkout or email us at email@example.com
