We’re all about subtle showstoppers. We design items to enhance everyday moments and whilst we want your meals to do the talking, we also want your table setting to have a little something to say as well. Regardless of the size of your dining table, we’ve designed a range of centrepieces to suit your needs.

Carbon Neutral since 2020

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.

Timeless handmade centerpieces

Our timeless collection of porcelain centerpieces are designed by Shelley Simpson and handmade in our Sydney studio. Available in 19 shades, our centerpieces are as much about self-expression as it is about functionality.

Whether it’s an extravagant dinner party or a simple weekday meal, our considered platters and serving bowls pair together effortlessly to create the perfect servingware set.

Porcelain centrepieces, designed to last

Mud Australia centerpieces 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 centerpiece, leaving the exterior with a vitrified stone-like surface that becomes smooth with handling.
