About mudpuppy

Sales 11,324
On Etsy since 2006

I hand craft ceramic products for urban living

In 2008 I was laid off from my day job as a senior web designer and it turned out to be the best thing that could ever have happened to me. I quickly realized this was my big opportunity to re-build my life exactly the way I wanted it and on my own terms so I started focusing on developing my clay hobby into a full time business and taking advantage of everything Etsy has to offer. Check out this amazing "quit your day job" series article about Mudpuppy here

My work is continually evolving but I do follow a few self imposed guidelines; keep it simple, include my love of plants, and make pieces I would buy myself.

In my spare time I am either sitting in the yard with my pup enjoying nature or scouring the web nurturing my soul with incredible art. You can see my online curation of exquisite work in all things including interior porn, sculpture, fine art and clay at

I am also on instagram if you would like to see some behind the scenes shots of work in progress and the studio @mudpuppyceramicstudio

Thank you for your support and for visiting!
