i discovered this place while in college and i love it. while its a good place to take the kids- tere are plenty of adults that go here- myself included. the selction of objects to paint aer things that can actually be useful and displayed in your home- from platters and cups to teapots. you spend about an hour or two painting, you can use books they have on hand for inspiration, and ten you leave it with them and pick it up about a week later- it is glazed and safe to use. makes a great personalized goft- and plus, its a fun place to just hang out with the girlfriends!

When they say Mud they really mean that stuff they use to make pottery. Think Demi Moore in Ghost. What they do is make pottery then you come into the store and you can paint the pots in whatever color you want. It costs like $5 for a half an hour. They also have pottery classes where you can make your own pottery art.

Our Name Is Mud is a great place for both the young and old who loves to paint and create mugs, plates, and bowls. They offer a "plan" where you come in pick out an item you want to paint and then they charge you by every 1/2 hour of $5 dollars. You also have to pay for the item you want to paint on. They offer cups, face mugs, bowls, platter, vases, and etc. So just choose one and start painting! They also have stencils for the less artistic individuals. Before you start a staff will come and explain to you the process. If you decide not to paint they do sell finished products.

Out name is Mud is a great way to revisit your childhood and have a great time doing it. The store sells prepared pottery that is ready for painting by you. You paint the piece you select, it is fired for you and you pick it up the next week. It's a great place to go with friends or to have a party, and you can have lots of fun. Fridays and Saturdays (I think) are nights for adults to have fun, and free wine is served. If you can't paint, they also have a beautiful selection of ready made items that are painted by the very talented people who work there.

If you're ever wondering what it'd be like to create your own clay designs, then I'd definitely go here. The instructors are very helpful and you actually put a piece of your mind into the design and pottery. I'd definitely come here not only because it's fun, but you also get to go home with your very own handmade and custom design

Our Name is Mud is a place you come to to pick out a piece of pottery, coffee cup or plate and sit down and paint it. Artidtic minded kids love this place and after the paint dries you have a nice piece of art to keep and display.

If you are looking for something fun and different to do in the city, this might be it! Our Name is Mud has a variety of ceramics that you can paint and customize. If you like painting and have a few hours to kill, check it out. You could make a mug for your mom or a gift for a friend, even something for your house! They charge by the hour, plus the cost of your piece, so check the website for current rates. You do not get to go home with your piece as they have to fire it in the kiln, so be prepared to pick it up a few days later. Our Name Is Mud also offers their own pieces that they have done. They do holiday and everyday pieces that would make great gifts or conversation pieces if you are not feeling artistically inclined. I have received some of their Halloween items as gifts and get many compliments. The staff is very nice here.

PROS: Create your own distinctive pieces for yourself or a loved one
CONS: Can get expensive- call ahead or check website for current rates
