I am really happy with this piece. The glaze has the perfect amount of sheen to make the pitcher stand out from the rest of our serving pieces but without being over-the-top shiny. This is my second piece from this seller, and I will undoubtedly be buying more, as the craftsmanship is excellent, the prices are very good for the quality of work and the shipping is fast!

Just received my cup and not only is it even more beautiful than the photo - but it is also really study and solid. The perfect addition to our eclectic kitchen! I will definitely be ordering more from this seller!

Beatrice Nathan shipped immediately. The item was just as described (absolutely gorgeous)! Beatrice Nathan has unique talent and makes beautiful handmade items for affordable prices. I plan on giving some of my purchases as gifts. Who doesn't appreciate unique and handmade functional art? Will continue to purchase from this store.

About

Handmade Dinner and Serving Ware!

I started making pottery back in 2003 as a starry eyed freshmen at a super hippy liberal arts school in rural Indiana. Since my dad made his living running a custom furniture shop it seemed only natural for me to gravitate towards fine crafts. At first it seemed that I couldn't get the clay to make any shape at all but over time I started being able to control this unruly medium.

By the time I earned my BFA from University of Minnesota in 2009 I was quite proficient in making different forms. But I still wanted more, a deeper understanding of the complex chemistry that makes up the clays and glazes that I work with. I worked as an apprentice with a few different potters I even had a great paid job working in a pottery studio. These experiences taught me the scientific and sometimes mystical aspects of glaze chemistry and firing.

In 2011 I landed in Colorado, in this wild west environment I'm happy to be starting on my own for the first time. I have my very own humble studio in a garage, I even have my own kiln for the first time. I am so excited to be able to share the results of my years of study and work with you. Every piece is a struggle but also a joy for me to create. It is my sincere hope that you enjoy using these pieces in your home as much as I enjoy making them.

    I started making pots in 2003 when I took a ceramics class at Earlham College. I was instantly attracted to the limitless potential of clay. I find inspiration from details in nature and enjoy constantly pushing myself to create high quality pottery.
