Spun Mud is the work of Australian based Ceramic Artist Bec Lindemann. She creates in a custom designed home studio which is off the grid at Mothar Mountain in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.

Bec has been employed in potteries for many years, starting as a decorator in a large production pottery called Yarra Glen in 1995. Soon after, on a part time basis, she started an Advanced Diploma of Ceramics at Southbank in Brisbane to study the art and science of clay.   Then, at Monte Lupo studio pottery she trained and collaborated with artists, some with disabilities, to create some amazing, experimental, outsider art.

Along side of this work Bec had the priceless opportunity to be a part of Amfora Studio Pottery. It's where Bec developed the feel for beautiful, fine, timeless, unique, functional and decorative ceramics.  She worked with some amazing artists, mainly women, getting together once a week to design pots and commune with food and wine.  Always holding exhibitions to share their art.

The wood firers of Southeast Queensland have been another big influence on Bec's ceramic practice. She has been involved with many wood firings where the kilns are stoked for days to create the amazing organic random ash glazes that make her figurative sculptures  look like they have lived a lifetime.

Now Bec enjoys working for herself, taking all of the learnt and shared skills to create her own designs on her own shapes at her own pace in her own space.  The home studio was built by  Bec's husband Todd. They each go to Eumundi market once a week with the Spun Mud and enjoy  the life style it has created for their family.

Spun Mud collections feature charming, sculptural, fluid forms and enchanting, decorative, retro designs. All made to grace any space.

Bec feels lucky and privileged to spend her days trying to master  the ancient art of clay.
