You know that at Beekman 1802, we believe that every living thing has a story to tell. And the animals on coasters designed by artisan Mary Beth Ihnken and printed on sustainably harvested maple are no different.
Snout the Pig is a former beauty queen who now spends her days as an advocate for getting girls involved in the STEM program at a young age. Next, meet Charlie - a black and white Holstein cow. Charlie has a PhD in Dairy Sciences and spends his evenings getting lost in historical romance novels. Gertie is a Barred Rock chicken named after the artisan's beloved Grandmother. She was the first chicken on their horse farm. What the artisan's family didn't know is that Gertie spent every Tuesday night at a local bowling alley. She reigned as champ in her league for six years. And finally, let us introduce you to Boo. Boo the Goat prefers suspenders instead of a belt, and is currently binge-watching The Wire.
WE may live at a barn, but you probably don't. Use a coaster!
Mary Beth Ihnken is a prolific artist with a fine arts degree concentrated in painting. She lives with her family in a restored 1810 barn on a spacious farm just outside of Ithaca, NY. Her daily runs take her past working farms, introducing her to her latest subjects and inspiring a new series of large-scale expressive portraits.
