I am a repeat customer and love the products from gleena shop. It is quite evident that Asya is a remarkable artist and delivers consistent quality, function and beauty in her pieces. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to an item from her shop or website. This is my second set of urchin bowls and I love the colors and quality. I always get wonderful comments on them.

About

gleena means clay in Russian

Founded in 2005, gleena studio is located in Cleveland, OH. Every piece in my collection is handmade with care, starting with mixing of porcelain slip. The porcelain is my own formula which I have tinkered with over the years. It is a high fire slip, which means that pieces are extremely durable while remaining thin and light.

Because I finish each edge by hand, every piece develops a unique personality as it moves through the firings. Bowls that come out of the same mold will shift slightly in the high fire to create unique, one of a kind shapes. They stack inside one another, but not perfectly.

I also mix my own glazes, each is non-toxic and food safe. I reclaim all my materials, to avoid clay particles contaminating our drinking water.

Always inspired by the natural world, I work with found imagery that I source from old books. The vintage etching is applied after the glaze firing, and the piece is fired one more time. The image melts into the glaze, creating a food-safe surface.

My pieces are dishwasher safe, but microwave is not recommended for porcelain.
