gleena ceramics

Simple, sweet and colorful – three words I would use to describe Gleena ceramics.  The work of Asya Palatova, “Gleena” means clay in Russian. Originally trained as a graphic designer, Asya returned to school to get her MFA with a concentration in ceramics after she fell in love with the process.

Influenced by childhood summers spent at her family country home Asya has created a line of ceramics that have a simple organic shape and beautiful translucent glazes that remind me of delicate bits of candy.  Several of the pieces feature nature-inspired imagery such as the roomy tea bowls. Other pieces, like the number mugs, have a clear connection to Asya’s days as a graphic designer

Each piece is lovingly made by hand in Asya’s  Pawtucket, RI studio.
