About Melanie Made Mud

Melanie Made Mud

Beautiful handmade functional and sculptural ceramics made in Wales

I have always loved looking at pottery, buying pottery and appreciating pottery.

I delved into it practically myself in 2005 when my daughter was born and was instantly hooked on all things Paint Your Own. Not long after this I started my own little pottery business which led to teaching ceramics for 8 years at various Adult Learning venues... funny how things link along the path.

I have lived on a narrowboat and wide beam for the last few years but experiencing the 7 year itch I have recently moved onto the next adventure, fulfilling my dream of living in the Welsh valleys permanently, my family are from Blaenavon and I have always felt the pull of 'hiraeth'.

I have a bright studio on a valley side, a great space for my rescue lurchers and to watch valley wildlife unfold... particularly the pair of buzzards that live here.

Its a privilege to have the time to make, experiment and create with clay and glazes, learning, testing and just seeing what happens... so you never know what may turn up in my shop...and if there is anything you are looking for in particular drop me a line!
