Milissa and Eric Beale, Creators of Beale Pottery
Exclusive launch and inaugural viewing of new collections
Join us at The Farm starting at 4:30 p.m. Milissa and Eric will be in the Mercantile with a myriad of product including newly launched collections.
Milissa and Eric Beale met in Northwest Indiana over the potters wheel, and have been creative co-conspirators for nearly twenty years. They have complimentary styles, and collaborate to invent colorful and functional works of ceramic art. Eric has mastered wheel work over the years and generates carefully measured, classic forms from raw clay. Milissa decorates the forms using vibrant painted colors, nature inspired design work, and organic glazes to finish their much sought after and unique pottery pieces.
The couple resides within a creative community nestled up to the Indiana Dunes National Park. They like to spend as much time as they can exploring the diverse ecosystems and plant life native to the Duneland region. Identifying wildflowers together is a favorite pastime. This unique natural environment, along with their local community, their friends and family, and travels to other natural areas have greatly influenced their artistic journey.
The partners work in small batches to create one-of-a-kind pieces and sets. They truly appreciate creating together, and that is illustrated in the quality of their craftsmanship. Their hope is that you’ll proudly share these heirloom wares with your family and friends… and enjoy them for years to come.
