Introducing the Etsy Mud Team  (this is their short name) – officially they are Etsy Mud Team for makers of handmade pottery, clay sculpture, and other ceramic arts  Team URL is: www.etsy.com/teams/6382/etsy-mud-team-for-makers-of-handmade


This team takes working with clay to a whole new level.  I’m going to do some real sharing of their creations because I am in such awe of what their imaginations have come up with in this medium.

Cups and Mugs, Bowls, Jewelry, Sculpture, Serving Trays and Kitchen Items, Wedding Decor, Home Decor, Supplies, Pet, Garden Items and More…



Ceramics is one of the most ancient industries on the planet. Once humans discovered that clay could be dug up and formed into objects by first mixing with water and then firing, the industry was born.  Animal and human figurines were made from clay and other materials, then fired in kilns partially dug into the ground.  In later years tiles were manufactured, functional pottery vessels for storing water and food around 9000 or 10,000 BC and thought at that time to be responsible for the creation of glass, when overheating of kilns produced a colored glaze on the pottery.  Clay has done so much for humanity and art it is sure a medium to be respected and adored.

Follow JD Wolfe’s board Etsy Mud Team on Pinterest.

Etsy Mud Team was Founded Jun 18 2007 and is a hub for well over 1400 crafting individuals and is a Etsy Fellowship winning team.

JD Wolfe is the wonderful captain of the team and Terry Parker is the team representative who we at the Etsy Teams Fellowship Society are proud to work closely with to network and come together for multi-team events.   When the founder of the team stepped down these women are 2 of the 3 individuals that stepped forward to take over the team in 2007 .


Terry – “Our team is pretty successful in maintaining a core group of active members. The active participants change over time but so far others have stepped forward to take their place. I would hope we are as active as a group 3-5 years from now and that we figure out more ways to help each other promote our businesses.”

Let’s meet the Leadership!


JD Wolfe (Captain)


I love JD’s profile

Three things you may not know about me: 1. My husband is a childhood friend. We first met when we were 15 and reconnected and married in our thirties.  He is a classically trained chef, and a big part of my life is helping him with his BBQ sauce business (Howling Wolf BBQ). http://etsy.com/shop/howlingwolfsauces 2. I used to live in a 100 year old concrete farm silo, converted into a 3 story cabin, with no running water. Living a pared down simple life really adds perspective to everything. 3. I have a passion for mid century vintage and Scandinavian design. I get a huge thrill from the hunt for forgotten treasures. I remember going to farm auctions with my Dad as a kid, and that really was the spark that started it for me. I now sell some of my finds in my vintage shop http://FaithandFranny.etsy.com ——————————————————————————————- More info about my work; I’ve been a potter for almost 20 years now, and knew the first time I tried it, that it is what I wanted to do with my life. I worked as a production potter for a large company for a year after college, and then opened my own studio/gallery near Madison, WI and operated that for almost 15 years until I started my family. I now sell my work primarily online and love sharing my work with everyone around the world. http://instagram.com/jdwolfepottery http://pinterest.com/jdwolfepottery http://jdwolfepottery.blogspot.com http://facebook.com/jdwolfepottery http://twitter.com/jdwolfepottery il_170x135.289163328 https://www.etsy.com/listing/86913072/made-to-order-nesting-cloud-plates-white?ref=shop_home_active_11   etsymudteamjd

I took my first pottery class at a Community College late 1996. I’ve attended a raku pottery workshop with artist Jim Romberg in Oregon and in 2010 a workshop with Jeff Oestreich at the Archie Bray Foundation. I continue to play learn and experiment in clay and glaze mixing. etsymudteamleader2

I love the organization of this team, from their website, to their FB page and all of their social media you sing with the love of clay I loved visiting your Facebook page the first post was so beautiful…   it’s  a photo of a child covered in clay working on a pottery wheel with a quote from Pablo Picasso. “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” -Pablo Picasso  

We look forward to meeting you!

Introducing our FEBRUARY Fellowship Society honored TEAM OF THE MONTH!

Australian Wandarrah


Australian Wandarrah is a moderated team open to both buyers and sellers living in Austrailia and New Zealand. A large team of over 1,600 members, treating each other with respect and compassion is the most important guideline of this spirited team.

The word Wandarrah is an aboriginal word meaning Meeting Place. Members support each other through thick and thin on this team. The team has also raised funds for the NSW Wildfires in 2013, and for the Street Swags in 2014. In 2014 they hosted regional meet-ups! Not a small task with the team covering 2 countries.

With such a large team, 1,675 members, you know they must have some amazing Leaders!


The Captain of the team is Cat. Her shop, Must Have Been The Cat, can be seen here:


Cat is a giving and kind soul who works hard to keep the team running smoothly.

She’s told us that she created the team because at that time there was nothing available for Australians on Etsy.  She wanted it to be a supportive community for both buyers and sellers in Australia and is very proud and humbled by the amazing community that has evolved.

We provide a huge range of activities including chat, games, promo and educational resources. Everyone is kind and supportive …its like one very large functional family.

She has many Etsy shops and is always thinking up new ideas

When we asked her what her goals for the team in the future this is what she said

“In 5 years I hope that our team is still going strong and continuing to offer the variety of things we do today. I hope it will have helped our team members make their shops the success they want them to be and continues to support them and give them a sense of belonging.”

We love hearing that long term dedication she has to support this group!

That is part of being a captain that many people don’t understand, it’s a long term commitment for many of us and that takes a lot of time and volunteer hours.

Her second in command is Kelly.

Kelly runs the team’s challenge treasury and is charged with maintaining the team’s curated page. Kelly’s shop can be visited by clicking the link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ColourscapeStudios

Hannah From Banana Apple Orange (a member of the Pattern Patter Team too!) Runs the “Word of the Week” Treasury Challenge.

Kaz from Kazzy Caboddles Creations runs the “Colour of the Week” treasury challenge and maintains the team Instagram account.

Stuart from Stuart Concepts maintains a list of team member’s items that are used to create treasuries. Visit Stuart here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/stuartconcepts

Andrea from Stitch Bomb helps where ever she’s needed in addition to maintaining the Spotlight Critique thread and helping Stuart with the Members Items list.

Star from Starzyia Manages the team’s Pinterest Boards as well as being a supportive leader helping wherever she can.
