I'm Claire, the designer/maker behind Studio Lehmann. I'm based in Melbourne and have been making ceramics for 8 - on the wheel, by hand and some slip casting - whatever suits the object. I like to think my background in graphic design informs my ceramics practise as I work in a minimal colour palette, with a focus on texture and material.
Currently i'm selling most of my work through friends and at occasional markets but i'm looking for some regular retail stockists. Have a look around and contact me if you have any questions, or if you see something you'd like to buy.
ABOUT THE CLAY
I use a mix of different clays, mainly from Australia. If it hasn't been fired, all clay is reused and recycled.
My ceramics are all made from quality porcelain and stoneware clays and are twice fired to a stoneware temperature - 1240-1280 degrees celsius. They are nonporous, oven, microwave and dishwasher safe - having said that i would recommend a hand wash for peace of mind. Every item is unique. Slight irregularities in size, shape and glaze finish are normal and to be expected with a hand made product.
