Nature's Bounty

Gina DeSantis' admiration for the natural world is at the root of all of her collections. In this particular set, creamy porcelain gains an arboreal elegance resulting from meticulous wax-resist and carving techniques. The fastidious faux-bois pattern created evokes the knots, grooves, and rings that give natural bark its unique texture and personality. Featuring sculptural organic motifs cast and glazed in understated neutrals, this one-of-a-kind set is naturally suited to mixing, matching, and complementing the contemporary table. Handcrafted in Ohio.

“I make work that brings happiness to the home and life's daily routines. I want my mug to be the first thing you grab in the morning to make your coffee.”

Gina knew she wanted to be an artist from an early age; she would overtake the kitchen of her childhood home with her art projects. As an adult, she realized her calling was to work clay, and in 2006 she earned her MFA in ceramics from Kent State University. Based in Lakewood, Ohio, she is inspired by the colors, textures, and patterns found in nature. She firmly believes that creativity happens equally in and out of the studio, and loves taking bike rides along the towpath or heading to the lake to get out of a rut.

      This work is exquisite. I love the neutral color, but the faux bois style keeps it from being boring. It's a gorgeous look for entertaining.
