It all began with clay and a crab. After leaving a career in marketing and product development, Becky McVan took a class in basic pottery techniques. She fell in love with the process of shaping moist clay into forms that were functional, artistic and beautiful. Soon after, her interests turned to watercolor painting. She sold her creations to local gift shops and a rapidly growing group of collectors. With encouragement from family and friends, she started her business out of her home studio with lots of clay and one watercolor of a Maryland blue crab.
Now, many years later, in addition to Becky, a team of freelance artists bring a broad range of art styles to B McVan Designs, and the number of functional, artistic and beautiful products offered is numerous.
All of our products are designed and decorated in the U.S.A. and most are completely manufactured in America.
