Linda Peterson is the potter behind Mud n’ Biscuits Ceramics. Truth be known, this is a one-woman show so she is also the bookkeeper, stock girl, shipper, and janitor as well! You can be assured that there is a part of her in every aspect of this business.
For as long as Linda can remember, she has been creating art. Starting with paints, and over time explored everything from mixed media to portrait painting. She had a brief fling with jewelry making before discovering clay.
It happened over 10 years ago when she lived in Michigan. She became friends with a gal who owned a pottery studio and gallery. Before long, Linda was working with her as the art curator. She quickly became hooked on clay, and her life as a potter began.
Now she lives in beautiful Scotch Plains, NJ with her family and built a small home studio. “This has been a dream come true! I am so lucky to have such a beautiful, light filled space to work in.”
“Some of my work is wheel thrown while others are hand built and sometimes, a combination of the two. This gives me the creative freedom to explore irregular shapes, simple and whimsical silhouettes, and amazing textures. I like nothing better than seeing a piece that is instantly recognizable as handmade.”
