Creator of Our Name is Mud® and Really Great News

Lorrie Veasey, artist and designer of Our Name is Mud and Really Great News was exposed to ceramics at an early age by her mother, a potter. Although her first pot was created at age three, she did not begin selling her creations until she was forced to supplement her teacher’s salary in her early twenties. From 1987-1995, she sold her creations at various street fairs and festivals throughout New York City. The direct customer feedback she received helped her form the basis for a unique product line with great appeal.

Veasey's designs are characterized by bold colors and witty sentiments that reflect her vivacious personality. She considers herself a craftsperson as opposed to an artist, and values the functionality of a piece as much as the surface design. She makes objects that are to be used and enjoyed on a daily basis, and she also considers important occasions. Her gifts have to be "special, unusual, quirky and feel like it is just PERFECT" for the recipient and their lifestyle.
