2019 Thanksgiving Style Guide

Setting the table for Thanksgiving, or any other celebratory family/friend meal is an act of love. Thanksgiving is just around the corner. Pull off a flawless feast with these timeless tabletop pieces:

Paris Platter – The Paris Platter is designed to feed a cast of thousands. Besides being a stunning centrepiece at your Thanksgiving table, it’s also perfect for oven-to-table cooking. Roast a whole turkey or a tray full of vegetables – no fuss. Beyond Thanksgiving, the Paris platter is a lovely addition to your kitchen island: fill it with fruit or lemons to keep it simple.

Wine Cup – What’s a roast dinner without a glass of wine? Our NEW Wine Cup is the perfect way to bring a pop of mud colour to your table. These stemless vessels are designed and made to be extra fine. Rather than detracting from the taste and experience, the tactile and thermal properties of porcelain maintain the drinks temperature better than glass. Already a best-seller!

Fish Platter – If you’re looking for a versatile serving platter, the Fish Platter is a great go-to piece. Use it to serve a loaf of bread, cheese, fruit or… a whole oven roasted fish?! A bonus for this platter is that it doesn’t take up too much room on your dining table.

Pebble Bowl Large – The Pebble Bowl Large is our #1 gifted item for a reason. It’s your everyday salad or fruit bowl that can also be used as a baking dish. Perfect for everyday use – think roast chicken & potatoes (again- oven-to-table!) or a large green salad. We have at least two in our kitchen at all times.

Introducing Our New Wine Cup

Many cultures have a tradition of special event drinks in ceramics. Think Japan and sake, China and huangjiu, Mexico and mezcal, and then there was the Romans who drank their wine out of terracotta goblets. For some time now we’ve been having an end of week tipple – wine and G&Ts – out of our latte cups and found that rather than detracting from the taste and experience, the tactile and thermal properties of porcelain…

Baking At Home With Shelley Simpson

Mud founder Shelley Simpson has a very simple philosophy when it comes to the pieces she creates; “I want things that enhance our lives practically and aesthetically, not make it harder.” This is especially true with Mud’s bakeware range, which looks great and goes straight from the oven, to the table, to the dishwasher. “When I first started making Mud, I had a lot of things in my house that weren’t practical, especially serving pieces.…
