Mudpuppy: Unique Handcrafted Ceramics

What do wind chimes, skulls, upside down flower pots, baby head vases, sheep, doves, and air plants all have in common? They are the subject matter for Denver, Colorado-based ceramic artist Michael McDowell's creations, sold through his Etsy store Mudpuppy.

Mudpuppy's creations are handmade from stoneware clay and are glazed with the designer's own colors. With the objective to "hand craft beautiful, well made objects for (the) home," Mudpuppy's pieces add character to any space. McDowell's latest body of work, featured here, "is built to clearly show the hand of the maker to contrast with, yet compliment, contemporary design trends." Selling on Etsy since 2006, Mudpuppy has 1,239 reviews, all 100% positive.
