Hello, I'm Melissa Paxton - owner, designer & ceramic artist for MUDDY HEART.
I started Muddy Heart as a small shop to sell my hobby-made ceramics over 6 years ago, it has since become my full time job, and everyday I am so happy to wake up and do what I love for a living.
My design inspiration comes from vintage objects, modern design and my worldly travels . My pieces are unique, with a minimal aesthetic and utilitarian as well as decorative purpose ; My intent behind each design is Beauty + Function.
I craft each piece by hand, using age-old techniques and a myriad of tools to achieve a beautiful, perfectly imperfect object that contains my love and care each step of the way.
I can't wait to create something truly unique just for you!, thank you for taking the time to get to know me and my process!
