A Mudslinging Extravaganza created by friends of Mrs. Mud

So, the kids and I were walking home from school today, and we came across this robin's nest sitting on a neighbor's porch. Fortunately, momma robin was willing to sit for a photo- and the babies are beautiful! I wish I had a glaze like that.
I have been making pottery since 1982. I fell in love with clay immediately in my youth, and this memory is part of what motivates my love of teaching children about such a “magic” medium. My ceramics education includes area community colleges and Akron University, but most of my education has been through studio work, making pottery at Hale Farm and Village, contact with other working artists, and through motherhood and family life. I also have a background in textile silk screening and mail order catalog production.
My life is all about my family, and making and selling tableware has enabled me to stay home and raise my kids. It is such a privilege to be invited to serve at so many tables- I appreciate the opportunity to make beautiful things which make a great family meal- or a simple cup of coffee- even better.
