AS iconic as the Sydney Harbour Bridge and Bondi Surf Bathers' Life Saving Club is Mud Australia, the tableware company started by self-taught potter, Shelley Simpson. Instantly recognisable for its palette of sorbet-inspired hues, its plates, bowls, jugs, vessels and platters have graced the tables of Nigella Lawson, Donna Hay and Bill Granger. Made from Limoges porcelain, all pieces are handcrafted at the Mud studio in Sydney. The pigment is then tinted through the porcelain to achieve its distinctive depth of colour with a clear glaze being applied to create its vitrified stone-like surface that becomes smooth with handling. With Mud Australia recently opening a store in Porchester Place W2, this handmade crockery and serviceware is now available here in London. With a style that is uncomplicated and a celebration of simplicity, we are sure that Mud will find instantaneous success. With a selection of over 18 colours and 80 shapes, anything from its collection would be the perfect addition to any London table.
