Beth Thomas

Bethany Thomas has been a creative as long as she can remember.  She is a writer, a thinker, a vocalist, and an artist who happened to land in a clay studio at Kent State University, getting her BFA under the tutelage of Kirk Mangus.  Kirk probably taught Beth the most important thing about pottery-- it's humanity.  He used to say, "Art should always be three things; personal, spiritual, and for the masses."  

 

Although she has tried, she hasn't been able to stop loving clay or making things that bring people together around a table of food or a cup of tea.  She now makes her work out of Queen City Clay in Cincinnati, Ohio, and desires nothing more than to share her story through her art with other artists and art appreciators alike.
