Etsy Mud Team for makers of handmade pottery, clay sculpture, and other ceramic arts

The Etsy Mud Team’s mission is to provide a center of community, learning, and promotion for the ceramic 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. Our creative skills range from functional pottery to realistic sculptures, made on a potter’s wheel, hand built, or cast from original molds.

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.
