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.

A shout out to all our fans and collectors in response to COVID-19

In compliance with the Illinois government issued Covid-19 lockdown we are closed until further notice. 

We are still working hard on your orders, and we are making pieces to stock our shelves during the lockdown period as long as we are able. Please remember we are happy to send you images of current inventory via email, text, and Facebook messenger and ship items directly to you.  Please support local business and each other during this difficult time. 


Stay well, persevere, adapt, spread only positivity
