beth MUELLER: illustrations and pottery
June 4th - July 4th 2009
Opening Thursday June 4th at 7p

Crafted of simple shapes and happy patterns, Beth Mueller's pottery and illustrations have such spirit. Striving to make 'clear and honest' objects like those she remembers from her Indiana childhood - the quilts and yarns and beautiful bottles she found on her grandmothers farm, Beth succeeds across all levels of art and craft. Mueller's endless hours of experimentation allowed her to meld a desire for sophisticated craftsmanship results without the use of cadmium, lead, and other toxic chemicals that are so often part of the process.
