Beate Reinheimer (1942) is a German ceramist. She studied at the Folkswangschule für Gestaltung in Essen and then at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam. Reinheimer has a very varied oeuvre, but one constant in her work is her use of salt glazing. Moreover, her works have remained usable. Since the 1980's Beate Reinheimer's work has gotten a geometric nature.
