Keep Love Afloat

A bud in bloom is worth a thousand words--like "thank you," whispered again and again. Leave a single stem for the one you love to show gratitude for all the little things they do to make your world more beautiful.

Beth Mueller's illustrated, ceramic vase sweetens the gesture that much more with a hand-painted life preserver floating above the word, "you." Every time they catch its bloom, they'll feel appreciated (and loved) knowing that they're your "life saver." Hand-painted in Vermont. Exclusively at UncommonGoods.

Vermont

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..."

      This vase is an adorable way to express your feelings. The sentiment is succinct and sweet (but without syrup). The vase looks exactly as portrayed on the website, and is the perfect petite size for a desk or bedside table.

          Comments about Lifesaver Vase:

          Unfortunately, this was not worth the money spent. I purchased for my mother's birthday and was expecting the message to appear much nicer. The life preserver and "you." do not look hand-painted. I was really hoping this would be more special.

                This item made my heart explode when i saw it online - was looking for a small token of thanks to send to my amazing surgeon, something she could have on her desk as a reminder of her skill and heart and general awesomeness. Perfection! She loved it and was obviously touched and surprised. Bingo :)

                I bought this for a friend as a house-warming gift. I was so embarressed when i was over at his place and saw it on his counter. It's smaller than a coffee mug, and the neck is too narrow to hold anything. He kindly asked me what it's purpose is .

                The "life savor / you" art is so sweet.

                    I purchased this vase to put on my husband's desk at work, after he'd been out of town for a few days on an emergency business trip. It doesn't hold much water, so make sure you only put a couple of flowers in it (or have him add water!) It's not so "girly" looking - and he's left it on his credenza for me to add another flower or two to it on his next trip!
