Gleena -- Wedding Season is Upon Us . . . .

Recently I stumbled upon this delicate looking line of hand-made porcelain called Gleena.

Gleena (which means clay in Russian) is the work of Asya Palatova a graphic designer turned ceramicist with an MFA from RISD. The graphic designer is present in certain types of pieces such as the wedding bowls below. You can also ask for similar set as baby gifts. There are also objects with great calligraphy. You can see more on her Etsy shop here. Palatova works out of her studio in Pawtucket, RI.

It's her nature motifs that I am most drawn to. I would love to see more insects.

While the porcelain looks and feels delicate, it's actually extremely durable. I love her palette. These are colors I could look at every day. Actually, I already do.
