Choosing your pieces
The best foundation for building a dinner set begins with 3 key pieces – a side plate, dinner plate, and a bowl. These 3 key pieces will afford you the flexibility to cover most of your serving needs.
The dinner plate anchors your setting so we recommend making this your first selection. Available in 3 sizes – Flared Plate Small, Flared Dinner Plate and Dinner Plate. The flared silhouette hints at a more classic shape, while the Dinner Plate has a more contemporary profile with a flat base and a lip around the edge.

What is unique about Mud Australia’s dinner plates?
Our handmade porcelain plates are made in our studio in Sydney Australia from high-quality porcelain clay sourced directly from Limoges, France.
Clear glaze is applied to the interior of each plate and bowl, leaving the exterior with a vitrified stone-like surface that becomes smooth with handling.
Are Mud Australia ceramic plates and bowls, dishwasher and microwave safe?
Our dinner plate 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 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.
