Ann Love from Waterford Michigan is the lady behing MichiganMud on Artfire.com. She's a mother, scientist, and generally crafty person. She used to do pharmeceutical research, but after her facillity was closed down she decided she wanted to spend more time with her son. "Making stuff" allowed her to do just that. Ann strongly believes in the beauty of an organic piece of art, which can be seen in her work. Each piece she makes is hand formed or thrown, then stamped, carved, glazed, etc. by hand. All of her items are one of a kind. She has a blog at http://www.yes-michigan.blogspot.com, and can also be found on Twitter, Plurk, and Facebook. Below is a sample of the work available from MichiganMud.
