Announcement    Kentucky is opening up along with most of the rest of the country. Our cases not going down, but on the upswing. My student helpers have all gone home to their families. No one is on campus and will not return until Fall. Even that is uncertain. I am not anticipating any student will be willing to risk their health by coming into the studio for the foreseeable future. Therefor no photographer other than myself. My bookkeeper continues to shelter with her family and is working remotely. I am taking this time to carve some waxes and make some new designs. My suppliers are also reopening in steps and working shorter hours. Please keep well and stay safe. This thing is not to be taken lightly. Even a mild case can leave you with life long complications. Patience and forbearance are our watchwords.

My assistants this semester are: unable to work from home. They have gone home to their families. (Emily McCowan who is working toward a Bachelor of Arts Administration with a minor in Art Studio. Also, Thomas Oliver who is working toward a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.) Working from home: Mary M. Adams (writer and editor) is our bookkeeper, editor of the listings, and sometime model.

I am taking this time to carve some waxes, make some new designs, and do some claywork. My suppliers are mostly working half days if they have opened at all. We are all just waiting for the storm to pass. Please keep well and stay safe.

PLEASE NOTE: In keeping with ETSY site wide new policy, MeritoriousMud now offers FREE SHIPPING on items prices over $35.00. Shipments that cost in total more than $35.00 will ship free (free shipping eligible).

Introducing: Mary Margaret Originals. Original cross stitch designs and kits by Mary Margaret Adams, a member of my shop. Exclusive to MeritoriousMud!

Using only the very best of materials I create one of a kind paintings, ceramics, and other items to last a lifetime - and beyond! I strive to create objects that are as individual as each person who might enjoy them. The paintings and drawings are entirely original to me and done entirely by hand. The pots are unique and non-replicable. All the ceramic pieces are food safe unless otherwise noted. Most, if not all, ceramic pieces have been shown in galleries and/or museum exhibits.

All designs are original, made by hand by me, and are copyrighted...because if my work is to appear on someone's tie or umbrella I prefer to design something specifically for that application. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions.

The art note cards are professionally printed from my original paintings and drawings. They are printed according to printing industry standards but are not archival as fine art. You can buy them individually or in sets of 4 or 8-your choice.

My giclee prints are done at Beau Graphics here in Lexington. Aaron and Duncan are wonderful guys to work with and do a great job to get everything just right - ie: the way I want it!

I usually have two assistants at any given time. With the exception of Mary Adams, they are always both University of Kentucky students. They come from many diverse backgrounds. Some are graduate students, others undergraduate. Their majors range from Pre-Med, to History, to International Studies, to Architecture to.....

Thank you for looking! Enjoy Meritorious Mud!
