General information and care instructions
Our porcelain is food safe and can, with some care, be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher. Sudden changes in temperature (e.g. from freezer to oven) are likely to cause thermal shock, which will damage your porcelain. Always place very hot items onto either wood, cloth or our Terrazzo Trivets.
To avoid glaze scratches, ideally your Mud porcelain will be stored in plate racks or with linen/felt between each item. Please note: ink, orange, plum, red, slate, wasabi and yellow porcelain are our premium colours. These items are more complex to make and require more pigment for depth and vibrancy of colour, hence the premium pricing.
Our returns policy
We offer a 30-day exchange period from the date of delivery on all online orders. Items must be returned intact in their original, unused condition.
Please email Customer Service with your order number to make arrangements to return your items. Make sure to pack the return pieces as securely as possible, preferably in the same packaging you received them. Any additional shipping and postage charges are your responsibility. Please note shipping costs are non-refundable. Mud is not responsible for any breakages of return items.
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.
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.
