I create pottery with the excitement and anticipation of it going out into the community with beauty, personality, and practicality. Using handmade pottery heightens intimate daily rituals of nourishment and celebration. It is especially important to me to be able to share my pottery with the larger community as our culture currently seems obsessed with perfection, mass production, and disposable domestic products. I view handmade pots as objects of love and consideration.
The words “modern cozy” best describe the clean lines and comforting colours of Muddy Marvels Pottery. Meghan McCrone enjoys collaborating with other artists and distributors to bring only the highest quality pieces of functional art to the table. She offers timeless and unique handmade pottery that elevates our daily rituals. The cohesive collections fit seamlessly in your home providing art that is able to move through all aspects of your lifestyle. Muddy Marvels Pottery has many continuing collections and several rotating seasonal collections. The Coastal Collection brings soothing purpose to the day, the 18K gold collection makes even your daily breakfast a reason to celebrate, and the Modern Metal’s sleek lines and urban metal edge pairs well with any dinner. Each piece is unique and has its own personality as every element is hand crafted and every detail considered. Art, community, and purpose are brought together to make Muddy Marvels Pottery.
About the Artist Meghan McCrone currently lives and creates in the stunning, mountainous, ocean side town of Squamish British Columbia. Muddy Marvels Pottery is a bright studio nestled into Meghan’s beautiful rambling garden and she welcomes visitors by appointment. Meghan has two young children who are already avid apprentices in training and she also invites budding potters to assist her and learn the full spectrum of what it means to be a potter. She herself was an apprentice in Whistler for Vincent Massey and feels it is her turn to give back, encourage and inspire those just starting their pottery journey. Meghan graduated from Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Ceramics and since then has participated in countless shows, markets, and galleries. Meghan continued on to UBC and obtained her BEd. She has been teaching art in schools throughout BC for over 15 years and currently is teaching at the Squamish Waldorf School. In addition, Meghan also offers regular month long pottery workshops in her home studio. She loves to collaborate with other creatives and encourages inquiries for special or wholesale orders. If you are traveling through the Sea to Sky Corridor feel free to contact Meghan and stop by the studio or check out Muddy Marvels Pottery at one of the local shops!
