NOW FOR THE STUFF:
Who the heck are we anyway! Here's what we tell folks...
Terra Cottage Ceramics is the combined efforts of Michael (the clay guy) and Victoria (the logistics goddess) Terra. We've been working as a team for over 27 years and selling Michael's artwork for over 15. We travel a lot (A LOT!) mostly for work selling Michael's artwork at art shows and exhibiting at wholesale shows. Then there is the occasional vacation travel that we squeeze in to places that we fancy. We are currently trying to limit our travel so that we can be home more. Yup. Uh huh.
We have lived in many places across the U.S. and presently we reside in an arts district in Paducah, KY. We participated in Paducah's Artist Relocation Program and we bought our house from the city for $10 (we know, right?!). We did most of the gutting and renovation ourselves and now we have a studio, gallery, and apartment (for our studio assistant) on the ground floor with our living space (home) upstairs. We live in LowerTown with many other artists from all over the country.
This is a picture of our house/studio...
We have two lovely daughters, Artie and Xan. Artie is in L.A. working as a baker & an artist and Xan is off at College double majoring in Restaurant & Food Service Management and Culinary Nutrition. We live with 4 cats, 1 dog and whomever is our studio assistant at the time. We almost always have cookies & coffee to share and love it when folks randomly stop by for a visit. Yeah, we're like that.
Here's a picture of the whole dang family...
Now for the all the juicy bits about Michael and his Mud Poetry...
Yep....you're waiting on Michael to have a spare minute to write something here. Yep, you are.
And here is that dandy contact form I told ya about....
