Mud ceramic studio is the brainchild of South African couple Werner and Phillipa du Toit. Working closely with underprivileged communities to uplift employment, the chandeliers are hand made with beads unto a wire frame to create various forms. The hand crafted beads represent simplicity in design and diversity in materials to create other forms. The chandeliers are successful they are bringing employment to the local regions in the Orange free state and garnering much international acclaim. Due to higher demand, the pressure to mass produce is on the rise but mud is devoted to continually making hand made products.
