Mas & miek Ceramic House
Mas & Miek Ceramic House is owned and operated by mother / daughter ceramic artists, Mieke and Charlie De Deyne. The pair have been creating ceramics together under the collaborative name Mas & Miek since 2011, and in April 2017 opened their dream studio space in Newstead, Brisbane.
The sole aim of The Ceramic House is to get people involved in clay. The studio is designed for everyone, from never touched clay before to the pro's who need a place to work.
The light filled, green studio space is designed to inspire and relax. In a fast paced, technological world, everyone needs a place that they can unwind, and get back to basics.
The studio Space
Our space is hidden within an old warehouse in gorgeous Newstead. It contains a small boutique selling handmade Mas & Miek Ceramics, a coffee bar, and a large mezzanine area with lounges, library, and sitting tables. Most importantly, we think, it also has a fully equipped ceramic studio.
The Ceramic House holds:
- 10 x wheels
- 2 x kilns
- 2 x large working tables (fitting up to 12 people)
- clay prep area
- slab roller
- a pug-mill for recycling clay
- clay bar in which you can select and purchase a clay that suits your project.
If you are curious, interested, or just keen for a sticky beak, please know that our space is open to the public at all times. Our guests are always welcome to sit upstairs, grab a coffee at our cafe, and watch the ceramic magic happen.
The ceramic shop
Not only does The Ceramic House contain a fully equiped studio, it's also a shopfront for the Mas & Miek Ceramics that we've been creating for years.
No two pieces are the same. Our work is an experiment in elemental chance, where the slightest change in kiln temperature or atmosphere can splash unexpected patterns or colours across a piece.
Through endless experimenting in firing and glazing, we wish to bring unique hand-made objects back to tables in every home.
We believe in the importance of cradling our wares in your hands to make a decision about which treasure to take home.
The entirety of our collection is handmade at The Ceramic House or our Sunshine Coast hinterland studio.
If you're looking for a break from the studio, or even just your daily caffeine hit, our coffee bar is open to all.
We'll be stocking Fonzie Abbott coffee, as well as HRVST Juices and some local edibles.
All locally stocked. All Brisbane companies. All delicious.
Feel free to pop in any time for a drink or a nibble, and recline on a couch or chair to read up on ceramics. We also do takeaway.
