    Mud Australia founder and creative director Shelley Simpson collaborates with industrial designer Zachary Hanna to design a new porcelain lamp collection.

    Founded by creative director Shelly Simpson, Mud Australia has made premium porcelain homewares by hand for the past 30 years – all with Shelly’s own design stamp. As a first for the globally renowned ceramicist, Shelley approached industrial designer Zachary Hanna to collaborate on an innovative porcelain lamp collection, making way for three new porcelain pieces.

    The Pop lamp, the Flared table lamp and the Flared floor lamp were created during a one-year design and production period, with all porcelain components made by hand out of Mud Australia’s Sydney studio. Joining the brand’s pendant and sconce offering, the lamp collection explores intuitive, technical functionality through Mud Australia’s signature Limoges porcelain clay, quality pigments and glaze. “It’s a real turning point in Mud’s development to be able to move into a whole new design category,” Shelley says. “Zac’s design empathy for porcelain production and his fresh perspective has enabled us to achieve a seamless embodiment of Mud’s design aesthetic and contemporary lighting.”

    The Flared table lamp is the first of the Mud Australia lamp collection to be available. Register your interest in the Flared floor lamp and Pop lamp here.

    Zachary says the lamp collection began with studying Mud Australia’s existing silhouettes and finding suitable forms to explore with light. The identified forms were then “assembled into arrangements that suited the dispersion of light, inverting bowls to become shades, introducing voids to allow the passage of light, and folding over edges to create a detail that allowed for ease of production and connection to the internal frame,” he says.
