fluxed earth is the collaboration of Rye Senjen and Kirstie Murdoch: ceramicists based in Castlemaine, Victoria, Australia.

We work together to produce hand built and wheel thrown vessels and objects from mixes of Australian stoneware and terracotta clays. Our focus is on traditional Chinese and Japanese high-fire glazes. The glazes are made by us from scratch using simple raw materials, including eucalyptus wood ash, feldspar, iron oxides and clay. The colour in our works is primarily produced by iron oxides, like the rocks in our local landscape. Our work is influenced by the textures, colours and sounds of the box-ironbark forest surrounding our studio.

The land on which we live and make our ceramics is unceded Dja Dja Wurrung Country.
