Flared Table Lamp

A timeless lamp for intimate spaces designed collaboratively by Zachary Hanna and Shelley Simpson for Mud Australia. Made from three handmade porcelain pieces, the Flared Table Lamp’s light source is cleverly nestled within the base, casting a warm glow.

Carbon neutral and handmade in Sydney, each Lamp is made to order and available in 3 colours. All Mud Australia is handmade in our studio in Sydney, Australia. Slight irregularities in size, glaze and texture reflect the artisan nature of the product and should be embraced.

About the Lamp Collection

Shelley had been musing on a Mud Australia Lamp Collection for years but knew that the design componentry needed a custom solution and the skills of an industrial designer. She first met Zac at an event in 2018 and, when she couldn’t get the lamps out of her mind, reached out in 2021 to discuss how collaborating with each other might work.

Crucial to the collection has been each designer's understanding of the other’s process. Over the design period, Zac conducted research on Mud's process and existing design language, even creating CAD models in his own studio to help finesse the intricate solutions needed. Shelley's expertise in pushing the boundaries of porcelain production proved invaluable in resolving structural issues and shaping the final designs. Throughout the process, both designers collaborated closely, offering ideas and jointly problem-solving to create new products that truly reflects their shared vision.

The use of matte powder coated steel for the frames and functional elements is a strong component in two of the lamps. The use of this material felt innately compatible with the unglazed porcelain, with the resulting designs displaying a happy marriage of our refined porcelain-making processes and the precise technical functionality of intuitive modern lighting.

The Lamp Collection grew from a comprehensive study of Mud’s existing silhouettes and forms. Suitable forms from the existing range were identified, and assembled into arrangements that suited the dispersion of light, inverting bowls to become shades, introducing voids to allow the passage of light, and folding over edges to create a detail that allowed for ease of production and connection to the internal frame, while becoming a design detail common across the lamps.

Handmade in our Sydney studio

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.

Carbon neutral since 2020, we’re passionate about social responsibility and believe in a sustainable future.

Our Process

Using porcelain clay sourced directly from Limoges, France, 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.
