MudFOLK: Tim

MudFOLK: Tim

Meet Tim. He's an aspiring potter and an idea man on the production floor. 

Product Specialists are the life blood of our work here at MudLOVE. They come in every day, handcrafting each product from start to finish, and find ways to make it enjoyable along the way. Today's MudFOLK is Tim. He's been around for a couple years and has mastered most of the processes around here! Let's dive in. 

What do you wish we knew about your job? 

Working with clay isn't an exact science, or at least if it is: I'm not scientist. So much can affect the creation process. The clay can be too dry, too wet, crack too easily, or stick to the mold. Some days it's a cakewalk and other days it's impressive we get as much done as we do. Then even along the other steps of the process other issues can arise, whether it's defects in the clay once it dries or during the firing process. In a way, every bracelet is a blessing and every mug is a small miracle. 

Well said. If you could describe your MudLOVE superpower, what would it be? 

Matter Manipulation. I take a long coil of clay and transform it into a workable product. 

Excellent power. What's that *one* thing you're really into right now? 

Pottery. I've been forcing myself to learn it and I am having fun seeing just how far I can push the clay and what I can accomplish with it. I like to see just what can and can't be achieved with clay. 

It's been awesome watching you learn and experiment. What's your favorite MudLOVE product? 

At the moment my favorite mug is the Inked Owl mug

Thanks for all your work, Tim! Have you checked out our new collection of mugs? Inked mugs have a rich history here at MudLOVE and are only available through the holidays.
