LouiseM studio is a small ceramics practice based in Marrickville, Sydney. Run by designer and maker Louise Martiensen, the aim of the studio is to bring more meaningful objects into your daily routines, knowing that your favourite pieces should be the ones you use every day and not the ones trapped in the cupboard being ‘too nice to use’.
Louise started her ceramic journey over 10 years ago after falling in love with the medium whilst studying at university. With a desire to experiment and play with technique, push design possibilities and then make pieces unlike what she was seeing being made elsewhere, she started her own business.
Each piece is made lovingly by hand from porcelain using the slip-casting technique. Louise enjoys it’s ability to produce items in multiples, but also the possibilities it affords for individualisation through a range of techniques and processes including carving, pressing, and colouring. Using white porcelain as a blank canvas, different designs have been formulated that utilise a variety of textures, colours, and forms.
Having a strong consciousness of our footprint upon the earth, we at LouiseM studio 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, making small moments beautiful. Individual differences are accepted and embraced. These are pieces that are made to be used, held and loved; they make stunning gifts as well as special treats for yourself
