M&Y Pottery - made by people for people - Misha & Yvona are potters based in Manly, Sydney, who produce natural organic hand built and thrown ceramic tableware. Each piece is individually hand crafted and unique. They are drawn from colours and textures of nature, simplicity and function.
Ceramics is one of the oldest technologies we have and our whole evolution is connected to it. Pottery has re-emerged with a new and important role to play in our society. It enriches everyday objects with purpose and beauty; it gives them a soul. When an object is made by hand, by an artisan, you won't want to throw it away. You will care for it and cherish it!
"When buying anything from a hand maker you're buying more than just an object. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying hours, days, weeks & months of frustration and small moments of pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing, you're buying a piece of heart, part of a soul, a moment of someone's life. Most importantly, you're buying the artist more time to do something that they are passionate about" - Unknown.
