Floralware Bud Vase
Hand made in Australia in tinted porcelain, the bud vase can hold liquid for your favourite bud flower and be washed in the dishwasher.
Eucalypt Homewares by Melanie Sharpham, are handmade ceramics made in Melbourne, Australia.
Drawing inspiration from our uniquely beautiful Australian flora, each piece is created in white or hand-tinted Australian Porcelain. They are glazed internally for functionality and food safe properties and sanded post firing for a beautiful satin finish. Tactile, durable and dishwasher safe, they are designed to be loved and used every day.
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 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 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.
