The art of living simply

Winterwares is a range of handmade ceramic homewares, born from a desire to embrace a slower pace in life. We invite you to savour the everyday moments that bring you joy – drinking a cup of tea in solitude or gathering around the table to share comfort food with friends. Cherish your daily rituals with Winterwares.

Every piece made by hand

Using thoughtfully designed, handmade objects everyday is an antidote to our fast-lane modern lives. Winterwares ceramics are all made by hand in our studio in Fremantle, Western Australia. Where we transform raw clay into robust and functional tableware – using the elements of earth and fire. Invite beauty and simple pleasures into your ordinary days with Winterwares ceramics.

Creating a relaxing and beautiful space is easy; it only takes a few intentional adjustments to completely transform how you feel, work, and live. At the end of this free 30 day guide, you’ll have your ultimate calm space.

At home with Kirsten Jenkins

Take a peek into the home of Food Stylist Kirsten Jenkins. Her impressive CV includes a list of Australia's most loved food magazines – she's been a stylist for Donna Hay, Delicious and Mindfood. (She's done TV too, working behind the scenes on the first season of Masterchef Australia). I love her philosophy around cooking and styling, Kirsten co-authored a book of sweet pie recipes where "spillages really are just an opportunity for more caramelisation and a misshapen pie just adds to the rustic feel".
