gleena in The Wall Street Journal

A great article on handmade tableware by Shax Riegler was published in The Wall Street Journal this past weekend. A gleena swirl plate was featured, which is oh so exciting. I am in great company with many of my inspirations: Edith Heath, Frances Palmer, and Michele Michael. I love what Lisa Neimeth, a featured ceramist, had to say about handmade plates: “it’s sturdy enough to use every day, it’s meaningful and it could become a family heirloom someday.” Indeed!

Shax Riegler has a wonderful book coming out on September 23rd, Dish: 813 Colorful, Wonderful Dinner Plates. It looks beautifully designed in previews, and I can’t wait to get my copy.
