Wabi-Sabi is the Japanese art of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in earthiness; it is concerned with revering authenticity above all else. It speaks of the beauty found in minimally processed, natural elements.

In a world full of social constructs, imposed ideals, cultural & religious expectations, & impossibly sterile standards of beauty & behaviour, imperfection can be hard to accept, let alone appreciate. These plates are designed to ignore all pre-defined ideas of the expected; they are uneven yet uniform, balanced yet asymmetrical, both black & white & shades of grey, imperfect yet perfect. They are Wabi-Sabi.

While these pieces will be very similar in size & shape, all of Made Of Australia's pieces are unique in character and markings, from dark and moody or pale & smokey, to those with both light & dark high contrasting markings & those with subtle shades of grey all over.

Everything from the Australian clays to the foraged indigenous flora & waste from native fauna used in the firing of the ceramic art is derived directly from the unique Australian landscape.

The works undergo a final stage of not the usual glaze but a unique seal of Liquid Quartz, a water-based coating employing revolutionary technology to ensure food safety & stain resistance.

This finish allows Made Of Australia's work to remain raw and natural and functional, and safe for everyday use.

Approximately 17-18cm in diameter and about 1-2.5cm high.
