Pressed + Poured was founded in 2019 by Mel Jewell and Sophie Leslie in the hinterland of Byron Bay, Australia.

Using beautifully smooth, pigmented, Australian porcelain we slip cast a variety of functional tableware in our studio in the Byron Bay Hinterland.

Nestled between the villages of Bangalow and Federal, the naturally beautiful surroundings provide both peace and inspiration.

At the studio we mix our own slip and combine pigments to create our own unique colours. Our huge collection of test tiles is one of our most prized possessions!

We firmly believe that functional pieces should also be beautiful. We invest a lot of time not only in developing our range of colours and shapes, but in trimming, sanding and polishing our slip cast wares. As a result, our range is both a visual and a tactile delight.
