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.

gleena means clay in Russian
Founded in 2005, gleena studio is located in Pawtucket, RI. All gleena tableware pieces are porcelain and are hand poured and crafted in small batches. To ensure a food-safe product, we mix our own porcelain and glazes using non-toxic minerals.
Every piece in our collection is handmade with care. We begin the process by mixing a batch of porcelain slip (liquid clay). This slip is our own formula which we have tinkered with over the years. It is a high fire porcelain, which means that pieces are extremely durable while remaining thin and light.
Because we 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.
Our organic shapes, soft sugary colors, and imagery are inspired by childhood summers spent at grandma’s country house outside of St. Petersburg, Russia. Surrounded by carefully tended gardens and apple trees, the country house was a gathering place for family and friends. Evocative of those leisurely days, the gleena line is meant to be used on a daily basis.
gleena porcelain is dishwasher safe, but we do not recommend it for the microwave.
