Hi! I'm Margie Mikliechuk, the maker behind Madewithmud. I have always had a passion for creation. Some of my earliest memories are of making lumpy ashtrays and animals with my mom at an art school in downtown Winnipeg. Some things never change. Despite having spent the better part of my life working and living around the world as a flight attendant, I always seem to come home to the clay. Strangely, following the upheavals in the airline industry after 9/11, I found a safety net in ceramics. For several years I sold my ceramics and shared my techniques in various places around the world including Nunavut, Suriname, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It seems that with the Covid-19 pandemic the story repeats; I am back in the mud in my east end Montreal studio and counting my blessings. It is my hope that in looking at my work you will find the same joy that I experience in creating it.
