clouds in a blue sky plate

I poured first the white glaze, then the blue, in layers on this plate. I like the effect. Perhaps do a whole place setting with this pattern?

A stunning letter-pressed poster by Jessica Hische, featuring the daily drop cap stars. Jessica is an artist that keeps inspiring me with every one of her creations. As well as her prolific work ethic. Impressive.

new gourd bowl shape, and new glazing

This is a new addition to my gourd bowl series, it holds 8 cups, and the orange interior is new as well. I’m experimenting with two color options for the gourd bowls, as opposed to the same color inside and out. What do you think?

breakfast is my favorite meal of the day

There was a time when I would grab a bagel and coffee on the way to work and eat at my desk. This was in NYC, when I worked for a design firm, and another life time. Now that I make my own ceramics, they get plenty of use in my house, especially at breakfast. I love a full, leisurely breakfast as I catch up on news and emails: tea, yogurt with granola, and maybe even some toast and jam. That’s why I created this breakfast set. It reminds me of summer with its bright color and sweet bird and flower. I can really use some summer right now.

Available on etsy in gleenashop.

a respite from winter (and studio)

What a glorious day it was today, and B and I took full advantage of it by going to the beach. That's why I live in RI.

gauge nyc: custom words

I am amazed by the fluidity of the words created by Gauge NYC out of simple wire. I love their idea of typography on a wall, easily installed by puncturing two small holes. Are you a poet, a writer, a lyricist? Contact Gauge through their etsy shop, and have your words transformed into sculpture.

ny gift fair

A big storm put a bit of a damper on the NY Gift Fair, but I still had a wonderful time, and met great people. My neighbors at the fair kept my spirits up, and the five days flew by, even though retailer traffic was somewhat slow. Gleena was picked up by stores in Pittsburgh, Seattle, Chicago, and Canada, to name just a few new locations. I’m excited to get the collections out to them. Thank you for all your support. Your feedback is what encourages me to keep on showing my work.
