From our hands to yours...

The Mudd Gang welcomes you to enjoy our handcrafted pottery and story.  We work daily in view of the Mississippi River in Alton, IL.  Since 1983 all of our pottery has been made by skilled loving hands right in our studio.  We pride ourselves in quality and craftsmanship of our wares made for durability and daily use.  We invite you to stop in and experience our lovely pottery and watch us make our pieces right before your eyes.  To learn more about our story, history and process please click our “about us” tab.

We have very limited capacity to take on any additional custom orders until future notice.  We will be able to squeeze in some regular production items only.  We currently cannot take on any request that has a specified size or shape, or matching  older piece.   Our apologies and we value and appreciate your patience!  We will be working hard to keep a variety of options on our shelves in the meantime.
