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.

Handmade porcelain lighting, designed to last

Mud Australia’s porcelain lighting 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 light, leaving the exterior with a vitrified stone-like surface that becomes smooth with handling.

Choosing the best porcelain light to illuminate your space

Our Small Dome Light and Dome Light are designed to illuminate small and intimate spaces, perfect as a bedside light or for your home office.

The Hat Light and Flared Light creates a soft spotlight for spaces needing clear and functional light. Great to hang over a round dining table, kitchen bench or in the hallway.

Our Eclipse Sconce Light sits flat against a wall and provides a soft, warm light for quiet spaces. This fixture doesn’t need to be hardwired and can be hung like a painting.

Ideal for generous spaces, the Wide Dome Light and Big Dome Light adds drama and casts a striking effect over a large dining table or kitchen bench. If space allows, you can hang our large and small ceramic pendant lights together to create a clustered effect.

The handmade quality of our porcelain lights create a more organic nature in your space, adding a sense of personalisation and individuality into your home. Our lighting collection has been developed in tones to complement each other, offering a contemporary design solution to any architectural environment.
