Lucky Mud Pottery is a home based studio. We run this business from our garage - a room that's been completely reorganized and figured out over and over again. It's evolved as my skills as a potter improved, and the output of the studio changed from hobby level, to craft shows, and now business.
The studio is at a point now, where we're recognizing and honoring that it's here in my own home. My home is called Rainbow House. She is filled with bold colors and creamy warmth. She has many, many prisms and rainbow clings in her windows. There's plants in my pottery absolutely everywhere.
This home has such an impact on my studio and how I do things. I honor Rainbow House and spread that rainbow a little bit further... into my logo, my websites, my pottery.
My name is Brandon Foshee, I live in Mill Creek, WA with my wife and daughter. Pottery's been in my life since high school, and it really just makes my soul happy.
Years ago, a quote from Kurt Vonnegut's "Cat's Cradle" really struck me and summarized my experience of being in this rather ridiculous world. And so I give you the namesake of my business, the Last Rites of Bokonon:
God made mud.
God got lonesome.
So God said to some of the mud, “Sit up!”
“See all I’ve made,” said God, “the hills, the sea, the sky, the stars.”
And I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around.
Lucky me, lucky mud.
