"Gleena" means "clay" in Russian. Gleena’s organic shapes, soft sugary colors, and imagery are inspired by Asya Palatova'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. All gleena tableware pieces are porcelain and are hand poured and crafted in small batches.
Gleena collaborated with Susy Pilgrim Waters of PilgrimWaters to create a limited edition blooming collection. Susy's lovely floral illustrations grace this beautiful avocado green gleena tumbler. Glaze coloration will vary somewhat as each piece is handmade. Use for hot or cold beverages or as a pencil cup.
