Founded in 2005, gleena studio is located in Cleveland, OH. All gleena tableware pieces are porcelain and are hand poured and crafted in small batches by Asya Palatova. Asya mixes her own porcelain slip and glazes using food-safe clays and minerals.
"gleena" means "clay" in Russian. gleena’s organic shapes, soft sugary colors, and imagery are inspired by Asya’s 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.
