Keeping things fresh and new is a challenge I enjoy. I love to always have new ideas brewing and then bringing them to life is what it is all about.
I am Marty Freeman the owner of MGF Mudpies. What started as a hobby developed into a full-fledge passion. In retirement, I have discovered the love of clay! Clay was my pastime and became my fulltime business. A perfect blend of creativity, solitude, and social interaction with clients at shows, festivals and events. After 13 years of playing in the Mud I have decided to stop all shows and festivals. My body took a bit of a beating from this pastime. After several successful surgeries resulting in a pain free exsistence, I have decided to limit my production to personal use and my fundraiser projects. As a little girl I loved to make mudpies and set them out to dry, then invite friends over for pie and coke. Now, I am blessed to make real "mudpies" and what a joy!
I love to make things with amazing color and form, but something that is very functional. I am a bit off centered and most of my creations are too! I love altered and textured things. Sometimes a little crack in the right place can make a beautiful piece. I like the unusual and rarely like to make the same thing more than a few times. I am constantly looking for new ideas and designs.
