Welcome to Et Al. Ceramics

Et Al. Ceramics is a small ceramics studio located in Williamstown, an inner west suburb of Melbourne. Allison creates handmade ceramic wares using wheel thrown and hand built pottery techniques. All glazes are made from scratch in the studio. We create functional wares combined with one off sculptural pieces with a focus on quirky planters. Our products can be wrapped and delivered Australia wide as gifts or personal purchases. All of the latest products are listed below.

Overcast and a little dreary here in Melbourne but the cold, windless and cloudy days have provided a blank canvas for creativity.  I’ve returned to the studio with greater intention and excitement, creating new glazes and working with ideas that flow into form in a considered way.  It’s been a bit of a spiritual pathway of late, trying to source a deeper creativity from within through journalling and drawing, yoga and meditation, and what emerges in my mind and sometimes the sub conscious.  William Blake has inspired me.

Et Al Ceramic Range. Neo matte handmade ceramics

New Glaze


Neo is our matte range of glazes developed so far in neutral tones – dove grey, birch, charcoal and black. There is a slight silkiness to this range for textural functionality to avoid the ‘fingernails on a chalkboard’ scenario and that added silkiness also reduces cutlery marks that can occur on matte surfaces. It will become our base glaze and hope to offer lots of muted colour variations for spring and summer.
