LouiseM studio is the ceramics practice of designer/maker Louise Martiensen. This Sydney-based creative’s objective is to bring beautiful handmade ceramics into your home and your daily use, firmly believing that your favourite pieces should be the ones you get out every day, and not what remains in the cupboard with the lament ‘it’s too nice to use’. Each piece is made lovingly by hand in Louise’s Marrickville studio using the slip-casting technique, and embellished with individual pressings, carvings and colouring.
LouiseM studio wares are mainly produced using the slip-casting technique. Louise enjoys it’s ability to produce items quickly in multiples, but also the possibilities it affords for individualisation through a range of techniques and processes that can be applied during and after casting, including carving, pressing, and colouring. Using white porcelain as her blank canvas, different designs have been formulated that utilise a variety of textures, colours, and forms.
Louise started her ceramic journey over 10 years ago after falling in love with the medium whilst studying at university. With an earnest to desire to push the possibilities, experiment with technique and make pieces unlike what she was seeing around at the time, she started her own business.
Louise draws her inspiration from the world around her, especially from nature, as well as through experimentation with form, colour, materials and techniques. Her favourite part of the job is developing new products and working on new projects, so unsurprisingly, she produces a wide variety of ranges of work. As well her own ranges of tablewares, serving wares and vases, she is also often engaged in commissioned works for clients and custom-ers.
At LouiseM studio we are very conscious of our footprint on the earth and wish only to add to it in a meaningful way with pieces that bear the mark of the hands of the maker and that people can make a connection with, using and treasuring for many many years to come. We accept and embrace individual differences in our products. They are pieces that are made to be used and held, and make stunning gifts as well as special treats for your own cupboard.
