pépite's story

contemporay ceramics by australian ceramicists


pépite is an informal gallery showcasing a curated collection of contemporary design objects by emerging artists. Our collection is available to view online or within the intimate environment of our Collingwood showroom.

With more than 50 artists represented, pépite features a selection of one-of-a-kind and limited edition works, predominantly ceramics, alongside sculpture, glass pieces, illustration, jewellery and accessories, most of which aren't available anywhere else. Each piece has been hand-picked based on the story it tells, its striking and authentic aesthetic and how well it complements the overall collection.

pépite's vision goes beyond sourcing and selling handmade pieces - underpinning what we do is a desire to uncover new talent, support emerging artists in developing their practice and present a considered and exciting selection of treasured pieces. 

Every object and happening at pépite has been curated by founder Irina Rybakov. Irina is committed to supporting local talent and has been involved in Melbourne’s creative scene since she moved to Melbourne 10 years ago (from Lyon, France). 

Oh and for those who were wondering, pépite means ‘a good find’ in French.
