With an elegant and timeless design aesthetic, Mud Australia thoughtfully creates porcelain homewares that are designed to last.
From our studio in Sydney we hand make every porcelain piece, actively building relationships with the people who buy and love our products across the world.
Sustainability is built into our design DNA. Our products eschew seasonality, complement any interior, and are made to last. All new additions to our range are designed to be useful and complement existing designs. We believe in conscious and responsible consumption, and this starts with good design.
We've always been dedicated to reducing our environmental footprint and our commitment to become carbon neutral was proudly achieved by the end of 2020.
Handmade porcelain carafes, designed to last
Mud Australia Jugs & Carafes are proudly made in Sydney. Our pouring team is trained in-house and use a combination of experience and intuition to cast each piece. The beauty of our pieces can be attributed to the hand-made process and human touch.
Using porcelain clay sourced directly from Limoges, France. Our 19 bespoke colours are mixed in-house. The pigment is tinted to the body at slip stage to provide colour depth.
Clear glaze is applied to the interior of each piece, leaving the exterior with a vitrified stone-like surface that becomes smooth with handling.
Our porcelain jugs and carafes are food safe and can, with some care, be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. Explore our drinkware collection, from porcelain Espresso & Latte Cups, Teapots and Tea Cups, Mugs, and Drinking Vessels to build your Mud Australia collection.

What are Mud Australia jugs and carafes made from?
Our handmade water jugs and carafes are made in our Sydney studio from high-quality porcelain clay sourced directly from Limoges, France.
Are your jugs and carafes, dishwasher and microwave safe?
Our porcelain drinkware collection is food safe and can, with some care, be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher.
In the dishwasher, make sure items are not touching. To avoid scratches on the glaze ideally your porcelain will either be stored in plate racks or use linen/felt between each item.
Sudden changes in temperature (eg. from freezer to oven / from oven to cold bench) is likely to cause thermal shock, which will damage your porcelain. Always put cold items onto wire racking when placing in a hot oven. Always place very hot items onto either wood or cloth.
