Every gleena piece is handmade with care, and takes four to five weeks to move through the process. Asya begins by mixing a batch of porcelain slip (liquid clay). This slip is Asya’s own formula which she has tinkered with over the years. It is a high fire porcelain, which means that pieces are extremely durable while remaining thin and light.
Because each edge is finished by hand, every piece develops a unique personality as it moves through the three firings: bisque firing, glaze firing, image firing. Bowls that come out of the same mould will shift slightly in the high-fire (2300°F) to create unique, one of a kind shapes. They stack inside one another, but not perfectly, which is just perfect!
Asya packs her own packages, and ships with UPS and USPS depending on the size of the box. Each package is insured for the purchase value. Each piece is double-boxed for safe transit.
If you are unhappy with your purchase, we can discuss an exchange or refund, and how to return the item the safest way possible. Please be advised that you are responsible for return shipping charges.
