The Etsy Mud Team provides a center of community, learning, and promotion for the ceramics and pottery artists on Etsy.
Ceramic artists unite to bring you “Art from the Earth”. Artists working with earth to express their individuality through unique, one-of-a kind art pieces.
A wide array of clays are used – porcelain, stoneware and earthenware. All pieces are hand-built or wheel-thrown. Many are quite labor intensive, while others simply appear to be. Firing processes are varied; salt firing, raku, gas reduction and electric kilns are used. Pit and sawdust firing are other methods at our disposal.
It is our goal to more effectively promote our art on Etsy by offering unique hand-made pottery; pottery made the old fashioned way – with care, one piece at a time.
The team periodically holds themed challenges to create pottery with various characteristics. The latest challenge featured pottery with lids. View the winners of our latest challenge here.
Winners of all past challenges can be viewed via the links under Past Challenges.
