Thanks for that comment, Bill.  I think that "terrible" is a terrible word to describe Beth's work.  I was her first college-level ceramics teacher.  She finished her bachelor's degree at Haverford College in Pennsylvania, where they did not have a ceramics program.  The only clay work she did at Haverford was clay modeling in preparation for bronze casting.  She came to Tennessee Tech University's Appalachian Center for Craft for a post-bac semester to get a hard-and-fast introduction to serious handbuilding.  Images of the work she did at the Craft Center and soon after are on the "student work" page of the gallery on my website.  She only spent one semester with us, but look at the work she did in that semester.  From the Craft Center she went on to a series of residencies and then her MFA at Ohio State.  She hit the clay world as quite a sensation from the start, and I'll never forget seeing her giant cornered jackrabbit in a gallery at the Art Hotel at NCECA in Louisville, KY in 2007.
