Thoughtfully handmade with care

Mud Australia is 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 porcelain dipping bowl, leaving the exterior with a vitrified stone-like surface that becomes smooth with handling.

Our porcelain dipping bowls are food safe and can, with some care, be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher.

What are Mud Australia dipping bowls made from?

Our handmade dipping bowls are made in our Sydney studio from high-quality porcelain clay sourced directly from Limoges, France.

Are Mud Australia porcelain dipping bowls dishwasher and microwave safe?

Our porcelain 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.
