Happy Birthday Mudslinger Pottery
On January 6th 2014 we have been in business 8 years; to date,
Captain Mudslinger has taken over 1700 people by the hand
and help them to create with clay.

My name is Kevin P. O’Hara.  I’ve been making Art for as long as I can remember and whether it’s a blessing or a curse, I’ve always been creative and making something. I have a BS in Art from Illinois State University 1982, and a BS in Broadcast Communications, with a Bible minor from North Central Bible College, 1991 – Minneapolis, MN.  For over 40 years I’ve been throwing pottery, drawing, painting, sculpting.  10 years ago I built my first reduction gas fired kiln.  She purrs like a kitten, or like a rocket.  She reaches temperature using 2 liquid propane burners and the colors are fantastic.

If I were to have a slogan it would be “Have Fun and Love.”  The translation would be, to enjoy the gift of today and put others first.  When my son was 5 ½ years old (about 2½ in the above pic.)  he asked, “What’s life for?”  I said, “ahhhhhh.”  3 seconds later he said, “I know, it’s to have fun, and  . . . to love!”  (translation: Enjoy the gift of today and put others first.) So that is my philosophy for Mudslinger Pottery.  I’ve tried to create a nice, relaxing, happy place where people can come and be creative, encourage each other and have fun playing with clay.   

Special Thanks to my wife, who believes in me and allowed us to move to Afton, MN and invest in a dream that has, and is coming to pass.
