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

            I didn't pay close attention to the size of the product in its description, so I was a little disappointed when I opened it. But the vase is very well made and attractive. I'm very happy with the purchase.

            Comments about FAMILY VASE:

            I bought these vases for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. I was expecting to get them and put colorful gerber daisies in them, but it turns out they were way too small.

            I thought they were really cute and well-done, but they are just really too small for flowers (and for the price in my opinion).

              Great gift item...

              Service and delivery comments:

              This was a gift and the recipient loved it....only major negative was that the item was specifically purchased because of the artist info and none of this was included with the gift.

                This was a gift for my Step Mother. I sent it to her for mothers day from Iraq. My dad tells me that it was enough to make her cry. She appears to love it very much.
