Bean & Bailey

Functional Pottery

abjb2_zps33c3e351

Bean and Bailey ceramics is a southern duo producing small-batch functional porcelain pots. Our contemporary slip-cast ceramics address the needs for containing, serving, consuming, displaying, growing, and showing. We use colored porcelain slip to construct both subtly organic forms, as well as faceted vessels inspired by natural crystals and gems.

Anderson Bailey has been involved in the clay world since he was a brambling teenage boy. He learned to hone his skills along the way working for other artists and craftspeople. Since moving to Chattanooga he has started working full time on making and selling handmade functional ceramics. Jessie Bean has been working with her hands since she was a young lady.  After years of working for other glass artists, seamstresses, and farmers, she realized her need to be creative for a living. Their mutual interests in process and aesthetics have brought them together to create a product line of slip cast functional wares.

All items are made in Chattanooga, TN in our small ceramic studio.  Please contact us if you would like to visit.
