Mud, Sweat & Tears Pottery Studio / NYC, NY


Mud, Sweat and Tears has been famously located on the corner of West 46th Street and 10th Ave. in the Hell’s Kitchen section of Manhattan for 30 years. Our full exposure store front streams sunshine into the studio giving it a bright, uplifting and open feel.

We have taught generations of craftspeople clay skills and have celebrated weddings and births and long friendships along the way. We are well known for our rigorous teaching skills and close attention to our students’ progress. Many of our students stay on as “studio potters”, renting space from us when they have taken all our classes and wish to continue their work.

Our studio evokes a comfortable, “old school” feeling and we are often sought as a film, TV and commercial location. Many of our clay pieces have been featured in advertising, films, television and Broadway productions.

Folks come to us from all walks of life and from all over the world ­ sharing the drive to create.
