OUR OWNERS

Hi, I’m Erin.

I fell in love with painting pottery years ago because I believe in the value of a hands-on, creative experience that you treasure forever!  Everyone should be able to create a masterpiece and proudly display it at their home. So I created a beautiful, inspiring studio with techniques that are so easy, anyone can create a masterpiece!

I can hardly believe what that first “little pottery shop” has become. I now have 6 pottery studios, my husband, Steve, works full-time with me on the business, and I am a proud mother of 4 children!

OUR LOCATION HISTORY

The Mad Potter Paint-your-own-Pottery Studio was founded in April 1998 by Meredith McCord, with its first studio in the River Oaks Shopping center on West Gray. By the fall of 1999, The Mad Potter opened its second location in the Woodway/Voss area. And in 2002, The Mad Potter opened its third location in the Meyerland/Bellaire area.
