Made by people for people
Misha & Yvona are potters based in Mosman and Manly, Sydney who produce natural organic hand built and thrown ceramics tableware. Each piece is individually crafted and unique. They are drawn from colours and textures of nature, simplicity and function.
Ceramics is one of the oldest technology we have and our whole evolution is connected to it. Pottery has re-emerged with a new and important role to play in our society. It enriches everyday objects with purpose and beauty; it gives them a soul. When an object is made by hand-by an artisan-you won’t want to throw it away. You will care for it and cherish it.
We wish that with our tableware you will enjoy your daily rituals just a little bit more.
During the lockdown we are offering local free delivery (Manly, Fairlight, North Balgowlah, Balgowlah, Balgowlah Height, Manly Vale, Mosman, Cremorne, Neutral Bay)
If you have any question please don't hesitate to contact us! As well we can wrap it up for you nicely (without charge) - please leave a note under your ordered product (Add a Note)
Our pottery takes up to 14 days to be made as each product has to be placed in the kiln twice.
Please feel free to come up with your own design that you would like us to put on our ceramics, any writing or decoration that can have personal meaning to you, we are happy to work with you to create your final product :-)
Ceramics makes us relaxed, clear our heads and teach us patience. You cannot rush clay. You need to be present and focus your mind on the material in your hands, disconnect from your to-do list, worries about work, and inner conversations. It is a form of meditation. Touching the clay, that feeling that you are again connected with nature in some way. We are living in a world full of technology, surrounded by all this stress and rush, we are losing this contact with nature. The process of taking a clod of mud, mixing it with water giving it form, put it in the fire, and walking away with something beautiful, functional, and completely unique is a magical experience. It brings an overwhelming sense of joy and satisfaction to anyone who works with clay.

CARE AND SAFETY
For everyday use, we recommend washing our products with warm water by hand. Stoneware (which is product fired in a higher temperature) could be placed in the dishwasher but we recommend to put it in the top of drawer (because the water pressure in the bottom is usually stronger) and try to avoid that something will fall against it. All earthenware products (fired in low temperature and thus are more porous than stoneware) are recommended to be washed by hand. Even if it is earthenware glazed, it is still porous so it is preferable to not be submerged in water.
All our ceramics pieces are dipped or brushed with FOOD-SAFE GLAZES.

"When buying anything from an hand maker you're buying more than just an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks & months of frustration and moments of pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing, you're buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment of someone life. Most importantly, you're buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about."
