“I saw an opportunity to use my knowledge and experience as a studio potter to develop an affordable, distinctly Australian tableware range of extremely high quality,” Ilona explains. This limited edition tableware is 100% Australian made using clay sourced from Axedale Victoria.

Working with Australia’s oldest studio Bendigo Pottery, Ilona has combined her Cone 11 Studio signature glaze surface and design techniques with textures and colours drawing on local landscapes and environments. With the current colour and texture ranging from muted and earthy with layered bronzes, greens, charcoals and soft whites.
