Bonbon loves Gleena with a capital L





Secret: I am in love with Gleena Ceramics. I've done shows with Asya, the artist behind the line, over the years and always want to take one of her pieces home with me. I finally got to meet her at the Brooklyn Flea a few weeks ago when I was lucky enough to be her neighbor. I got to stare all day at Asya's beautiful work.
I finally got my Gleena collection started with two of these little petal nesting bowls...No. 9 and No. 12. I love the sensual feeling of the work along with the delicate old graphics and lettering she picks...I'll see her again on the 16th and I think I'm going to finally get some platters and bowls and cups and....oh man...help!





More favorites and her blog and her etsy shop. Good for Mother's Day huh if I don't keep it all myself?

Hey! I'm here today on reading my tea leaves one of my new favorite blogs (!) and also here (scroll down to the bottom!)

Dear Bon
these delighted me.
I'm a sucker for ceramics.
So when the rain stops how about a bike ride to Chelsea to meet Buster?
