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.
The perfect size for sipping green tea (or something harder), 6cm high with a 6cm diameter at the lip, these slightly irregular forms are the perfect addition to our tea carafes or as a set of spirit/sake cups on their own.
All our unglazed “naked” ceramics are handcrafted 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. Literally, Pieces OF Australia.
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.
