Eric Beavers lives in Nesbit, MS but was born and raised in Northwest, NM. The son of an archaeologist,
Eric was raised learning about the functional pottery made and used by Native American potters
indigenous to where he grew up. The culture and scenery of the American Southwest has influenced the
techniques and colors of the functional pottery he makes. Upon moving to the Mid South Eric attended
the University of Mississippi and graduated with a BFA in Ceramics and now works full time as an art
