Beth Mueller

Raised in rural Indiana, Beth Mueller now lives in Barre, Vermont, where she creates splendid hand-painted ceramic pieces.

Beth received a BA from Eckerd College. During here time there, she also worked at Studio Santa Reparata in Florence Italy, learning printmaking. Upon graduation, she served a two-year apprenticeship in the pottery studio of John Glick.

Her work is also influenced by the experience she gained before becoming a professional artist.

This road to becoming a full time studio artist included her work as a camp counselor, supervisor for a housing shelter, waitress, bartender and French teacher--not necessarily in that order.

She is inspired by capturing small snapshots of what she sees around her. "It all amazes me," she says. "All of these pieces relate in one way or another to some part of my life--a trip, a person--they are often little personal notes..." collection

        This is the kind of thing any mother or grandma would love to receive. It's cute, and the cookies on the jug hint to the specialness of a mom making cookies for her kids or grandkids. While it has the features of something homemade, the fact is that one can see that it is well made. Combine this product with some flowers, and you have something she will certainly appreciate.

        gift for grandma who has everything

            Comments about GRANDMA VASE:

            I bought this gift for my mom, who has everything. She immediately appreciated its uniqueness and nostalgic quality. It's great because it's small and doesn't take up a lot of space, and it's design should fit in with almost any decor. It won't hold a lot of real flower stems but it shouldn't need to for its design. An idea is to take a few pictures and put them on clips attached to clipped wire hanger rods - photos of grandkids are the flowers.

              My mom became a grandma this year and she's known for her chocolate chip cookies. I know when she opens this on Christmas, she will love it. It's perfect.

                    I was expecting this to be bigger than it was. I was also disappointed that the font was blurry as was the graphic. I ordered this as a gift; however, if I had seen it in a store - I would not have purchased it. Especially for the price.

                      Given as a Mother's day gift to my mom, who recently became a Grandma for the first time. She was absolutely delighted and will use it for small flower bouquets.
