Mari Moore-Mosby: Mudbug Creations
I am a ceramics artist, focusing primarily on wheel thrown functional works with a penchant for whimsy and bright colors. I enjoy incorporating different types of detailing, including carving, handbuilt additions, and differing glaze techniques. My work is primarily red mid-fire stoneware. I am in a constant state of experimentation, open to learning new techniques and styles in my artistic journey. Even though I try to create fun and happy ceramics, I also try to make sure it’s also comfortable and ergonomic, making it easy to use daily.
I was born and raised in Springfield, MO. My ceramic journey started in 2007 and it never let me go. It held on even as I achieved my bachelor's degree in Exercise and Sports Science, followed by a Doctorate in Physical Therapy. Even though I work full time in healthcare, ceramics won out as my true artistic love. With the help of my family and teachers, Mudbug Creations began in 2011 and has been a constant source of joy for me ever since.
