Rustic Ceramics – New range

For quite some time I’ve been dreaming about a brand new range. Pieces that are rustic and gritty while also being contemporary and sleek. A combination of rough and smooth, gritty and glossy, organic and polished. They are pieces you want to touch, enjoy and share.

Springwood Porcelain is still going strong, but because the new range is so vastly different, I have decided to create new platforms for Rustic Mud Ceramics.

To follow along with this new journey, you can find me at these places:

Christmas release – 2017

We are well into October and while many of you still have your hands over your ears saying lalalalala, that doesn’t change the fact that Christmas is coming!!

For me, it’s been all systems go for months. I have to make well over 300 decorations to prepare for the silly season. My Etsy shop is chock full of ready to ship sets and lots of options for personalised decorations. I’ve got you covered for teacher’s gifts, grandparent gifts, new baby gifts and special memories for your own tree.

Personalised decorations even have the option of coming with a gorgeous handmade gift pouch, so you don’t even have to worry about wrapping your super amazing gift!

Below are just some of the items available for purchase or order right now in my Etsy shop.

Latest release – Floral & Lace

Floral and lace, a match make in heaven!

I’ve been working with floral decals for quite some time, and lace is a staple, but I’ve never put them together, until now! I love the combination and it seems you guys do too. This new range has been super popular and I think they make the perfect birthday, engagement or wedding gift. Sweet and girly and totally unique.

Check out the full range ready for purchase in my Etsy shop.

New for 2017

The start of the new year is always the perfect time for me to try out new ideas that have been simmering at the back of my mind. From September to December I’m so busy with orders for Christmas and keeping up with demand for decorations that all else is pushed to the back burner. January brings some breathing room and time for getting back to letting the creativity flow.

Here are a few pieces that have come out of the kiln in January that are new to my range. I’m especially loving the organic shaped nesting bowls and testing out some new glazes.

Head over to my Etsy or Madeit shop to see what else is new for 2017.

Going.. Going.. Almost gone!

If you’ve been thinking about a special gift for your child’s teacher, grandparent, special friend or something for your own tree, then you better get moving! It won’t be long until I won’t be taking more orders for personalised decorations. One of these special decorations goes through lots of processes before it’s ready to ship to you. First it’s rolled, cut and dried for several days, then sanded and refined. Next is to fire in the kiln for 15 hours, with another 8 hours for the kiln to cool. Then it’s 2 coats of glaze before being fired again. Finally, I add your special wording then it’s back into the kiln for a 3rd firing before being wrapped, boxed and posted. Phew, that’s a lot of work!

There are lots of personalised options this year with lots of choices to make. From glaze colour to ribbon colour, decoration shape to bead finish. You can customise your decoration to get just the result you are after. Here are a few of the options:

If you are after a ready to go gift, I’ve got you covered for that too. From ring dishes to fridge magnets, decorations to bowls. Any ready to ship item will be posted the next business day.

It’s a scary thing, but Christmas is only 10 weeks away!

Ceramic garden markers

The idea came to me one sunny Sunday afternoon. I had planted up some herbs in my back garden, which I’d been meaning to do for about 2 years! I wanted my 8-year-old to be involved and know the names of the different herbs so thought I’d make some herb markers. After playing around with a few designs I settled on the ice cream cones because they are so fun! Both of the designs you see here are now listed in my Etsy and Madeit stores if you’d like a set of your own.
