My Story

 

Hi there, and welcome to Mad Ceramics! My Name is Madalynn and I am the one woman show behind Mad Ceramics. I grew up in the high deserts of Utah, but moved to northern California when I was 15 and have since lived in Washington state and now I reside in Oregon! I fell head over heels for the pacific northwest, and a lot of the inspiration for my work is derived from the magical landscapes and plants of the PNW. I was raised by artists and musicians, so pursuing an art career has always been my dream. I enrolled in college with the intent to pursue oil painting, and that's where I took my first wheel throwing class and fell completely in love with clay. I soon dropped out of college to travel for a couple years, but I always knew I would come back to working with clay. Once I settled down here in Oregon I joined the local community pottery studio and spent hours practicing throwing, trimming, and glazing. Then just a year ago I decided to invest in a wheel and kiln to create my own home studio. After a lot of trial and error I started to find my personal style, and sell my work online. I hope to continue to grow my little ceramics business and continually improve my craft.

Thanks so much for being here, and for all your support!
