About

If we can add a laugh or a cheerful moment to someone's day, then we feel pretty good about that.

Chad's love for pottery began in his high school ceramics class many (but not so many!) years ago. He later earned a degree in Fine Arts with a focus in Pottery from Auburn University. Not wan ting to be a family of starving artists, Meghan earned her degree in Business. They combined their talents - and also lived in a meat cooler for a little while, but that's a different story - and opened Nelson Studio in 2008. They now sell their pottery throughout the United States and worldwide.

One day, while potterizing, as he calls it, Chad decided that if he could create something that would help people smile a little every day, it would be worth making. This idea sparked the birth of Ug Chugs and transformed. Chad into 'that guy with the crazy face pottery'.

So, here we are, making pottery, raising two kids, and definitely not living in a meat cooler any more (although, it did smell enticingly like smoked ham). No matter how busy we are, we still put quite a bit of care into each piece we create, from personally making every eye, tooth, and lip to hand-glazing each item. We love creating our work, and we hope you love using it!
