Meet Kyoko

Hi nice to meet you!

My name is Kyoko and I started hodg podg creation in 1999. I initially wanted to create beautiful original dinner ware for my family and friends and I filled my cupboard in no time, then I started to get orders from friend’s friends and friend’s friend’s mum and so on… that was the beginning of hodg podg creation.

I am passionate about making the ware that brings joy and smiles onto people’s faces. Also at a same time it has to be practical ware that you are able to use. I also love the colours and I experiment with them all the time. hodg podg creation ware are bright and will brighten up any table instantly!

It is ironic that I am in this business as my grandfather was a very reputable pottery artist and has exhibits in different part of the world. Mine is completely different style to my grandfather’s but I believe we share the same passion in different timeline of our lives.

hodg podg friends are all over the world and I have created some personalised ceramic ware for some famous people such as Elton John, INXS, Jamie Durie, Mal Meninga to name a few. ( Thanks to Deb!)

My design ranges include weddings, birthdays, christenings, special anniversaries along with special gift range for teachers, sports coaches and grandparents! Any occasion, any celebration, I will design and paint the original ware for you!

“I love making original ceramic ware to brighten up the dining table and bring a smile to anyone who sees it.”
