About-Beyond Blue Ceramics
Bettina Kleemann fell in love with ceramics early on while still in school in her native Germany. An apprenticeship allowed her to explore her talent, after which she broadened her skills in a variety of studios around Germany. A grant to study with Michael and Magdalena Frimkess brought her to Venice, California. She founded Beyond Blue Ceramics there in 1995.
Every piece is hand-thrown by Bettina on her potter's wheel and are shaped, trimmed and carved using traditional tools. Each glaze is mixed according to a unique formula by blending raw materials and are applied by brush or by dipping.
Her ceramics are created to make everyday living more delightful.
