Marloe Morgan Ceramics

Colour, texture and form sets life-inspired tableware ranges apart.

Two days a week Marloe Morgan travels south from her cooperative art studio in northern New South Wales to Lismore, where she's completing a Diploma of Ceramics. The journey brings her plenty of inspiration for her high-fired, hand-thrown stoneware. From shallow bowls awash with popping orange and yellow, to organic-shaped platters and high-gloss rain-print sake cups - no two pieces are the same and each is designed with sharing, entertaining and everyday use in mind.

What techniques do you use in creating your pieces?
I throw on the potter's wheel, slip-cast using moulds of work I have thrown, and hand-build using pinching and slab-rolling techniques. Not all creations can be realised using just the one technique and being able to work across different processes from project to project is important.

I also spend a lot of time testing and formulating my own custom glazes, researching glaze chemistry and tweaking the recipes.

What's the Marloe Morgan bespoke service all about?
A client will approach me with an idea and I design, sample and produce the work to scope. This allows individuals to have a custom product designed and produced in Australia exactly to their specifications. Anything is possible.

Marloe Morgan Ceramics, from $18 (mini dish).
