Customer care & Shipping
Australian made tableware drawing inspiration from uniquely beautiful Australian landscapes and designed to be used every day, Eucalypt Homewares creates decorative and functional handmade ceramics.
“Eucalypts are majestic in their coats of dusty green and brown with offerings of exquisite and intricate flowers. The flowers, often unnoticed high in the tree canopy, remind us to seek quiet beauty in life. Unique to our place of dry earth and forever sky, the trees with their almost secret gems, evoke our spirit and connect us here.”
Australian Made Dinnerware
All our ceramics are hand made in the Eucalypt Studio Northcote, inner city Melbourne.
They are slip cast or hand-built from porcelain clays and fired to a high temperature.
The clay body is hand tinted and a clear glaze applied to the internal surface. The blue and white porcelain Floralware Range is decorated with a printmaking technique, the decals designed by Melanie. Each piece is then sanded post firing to give a lovely satin feel.
Variations and irregularities may occur in size, shape, colour & glaze, making each piece unique and one-of-a-kind.
Caring for your ceramics
Porcelain dinnerware is a type of ceramic that is strong and highly vitrified even though the external surface is not glazed. However, it is a hand-made and unique product so some care is needed.
We recommend washing in the dishwasher, being careful of the rims and avoiding over stacking. If washing by hand, please use extreme care as knocking items together in the sink can causes your ceramic to chip or crack.
To keep your pieces beautiful, minimize contact with staining foods or liquids on unglazed surfaces. Also avoid putting your Eucalypt Homewares pieces in the oven as the oils from the oven can stain, also there is a high risk of thermal shock (cracking caused by moving ceramic to and from extreme temperatures eg hot oven to cold bench.)
We recommend the tumblers are stacked in groups of no more than two, to prevent jamming.
