Beth Mueller

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

    It is fine, just a little smaller than I expected (my fault) and the pattern is not as bright/clear as I would like.

          The sisters vase is so appropriate because our children call us "The Hens." My daughters gave one to me for my birthday, so I just had to get one for my sister for Christmas!

            This was a perfect gift for my sister. She says it's sitting on her table and she's waiting for the lilacs to bloom to put some in the vase. I had it gift wrapped and she was very pleased with the presentation.

              I can't wait to give it to my sister. The shape reminds me of the old time mile bottles from the farm we grew up on :)

                Great gift, but it did seem a little pricey --- worth it though as my sister loves chickens!

                  It was a gift for my sister but we both thought that the chickens and the word sisters on the vase were too faint to see well...disappointing.
