My name really is Mudd, I promise, it's just a wonderful and silly coincidence that I am also a production potter. I am based in Portland Oregon, and I personally handcraft each piece using a variety of techniques. Much of my work is thrown on the wheel, but I also hand build as well as slip cast certain objects. 

I love everything about clay, and getting to work with it all the time is hands downs, the absolute best! Sure, it's a messy medium and at times can be very physically demanding, but I wouldn't have it any other way. There is something so special and rewarding in knowing that through this crazy process I am making a piece that will become part of somebody else's life, and somebody else's story. It's my goal as an artist and as a maker to create objects that are ready to take on a life of their own, and with the help of their owner, start a narrative that is unique them.
