What tool can you not live without?

I hate to admit it, but my computer. Oh, and my Mitsubishi pencil sharpener. They are both so excellent.

How did you come up with the BRIKA + Beth Mueller custom cards?

I read through the BRIKA blog where core values were discussed. That was a jumping-off point for my visual language and as your values and mine are so closely aligned, it was really quite easy!

Where do you go to unwind?

Our local coffee bar is Espresso Bueno. It is not big or at all fancy, but their coffee and pastries are fabulous...you always run into someone you know.

A truly guilty pleasure is sneaking out to ski during the workday.

Beth Mueller

If we ever needed proof of the power of childhood memories, Beth Mueller could tell us a thing or two. From studying the colorful patterns on her grandmother’s quilt during naptime to watching a film about a potter and thinking, “That’s what I want to be,” Beth’s creative streak was sparked at a young age.

Fast-forward to adulthood, with an art degree and a two-year pottery apprenticeship tucked under her belt, Beth slowly began to build her own studio, picking up second-hand equipment and holding down two part-time jobs to make ends meet. Her hard work paid off, but more importantly Beth’s artwork retains that feeling of youthful wonder.

"I studied art in college. I also worked in a printmaking studio in Florence, Italy, and apprenticed to a potter for two years. Since then, I devour design books."
