about beth menczer
Clay artist Beth Augusta Menczer lives in Glenwood, New Mexico; where she creates the animals she loves. Calling her works "three-dimensional paintings", Menczer continues to stretch her fascination and appreciation for clay as an art form.

Splashes of color, intricate designs and her unique construction of the animals eyes transform inert clay objects into vibrant art forms.

A New Englander by birth, Menczer received an Associate Science Degree, with Honors in Ceramics, from Endicott Junior College, Beverly, MA in 1969. She graduated with a Bachelors of Arts Degree from Alfred University's prestigious College of Ceramic in 1973.

She has been featured in several art magazines, such as Southwest Art and the Santa Fean, and her unique clay art resides in many private and public collections (most recent-Capitol Arts Foundation,NM) throughout the United States, Europe and Israel.
