Product Care & General Information

Each piece of Mud Australia is handmade in our Sydney studio from the finest porcelain and designed to emphasise line and functionality.

Ink, Orange, Red, Slate and Plum are our premium colours. They are 20% more expensive due to the cost and quantity of pigment needed to make the vibrant colours.

Mud Australia porcelain products have been tested for lead and cadmium, and comply with British Standard BS4860. All products are food safe. Please contact us for further information.

Absolutely, most of our porcelain are microwave, oven & dishwasher safe. We would not recommend placing your Nest Bowls in the oven due to their shape.

Porcelain is one of the strongest ceramic material, however it is not indestructable. If you drop an item, it is likely to break (as glass would). Likewise, if you hit it against a surface or another item, it may chip. Moving your items to extreme temperatures, eg from a hot oven to a cold benchtop will likely cause thermal shock. So please treat your Mud products with care.

Thermal shock is a sudden temperature fluctuation causing stress in an object. Moving your items to extreme temperatures, eg from a hot oven to a cold benchtop, will likely cause thermal shock. To avoid thermal shock do not place your items directly from the fridge into the oven, or the oven to a cold benchtop. We recommend using a wooden board or trivet.

When stacking Mud plates or bowls, scratches may occur due to the unglazed surface rubbing against the glazed surface. To avoid scratches we recommend stacking with felt, cloth or foam inbetween each item. Felt can be purchased from one of our Mud Australia stores. If you are concerned about scratching, and don’t want to use felt, we would recommend selecting lighter colours.

The stains should come off in the dishwasher. If you already use the dishwasher, we would recommend using a “magic sponge” (trust us it works), baking soda or a cream cleaner.

The unglazed surface will smooth down over time with general handling, use and washing.

Never fear, we sell refills for our candles! Alternatively you can wash the vessel and use it as a vase. Handwashing is advised to ensure all the wax is removed safely.

Yes, we offer a dinnerset discount in our retail stores (unfortunately not online). To receive the dinnerset discount the dinner set will need to comprise of 6 or more place settings (3 pieces per setting). Applies to porcelain items only and must be purchased in the same transaction.

Due to Covid-19 our stores are closed. Feel free to contact our studio by email mud@mudaustralia.com and book yourself a virtual consultation to purchase a Mud dinnerset.
