Ceramics by Gina DeSantis

Gina DeSantis strives to create well crafted dinnerware and decorative pieces for your home, of beautiful speckled brown clay.

After completing her MFA in ceramics from Kent State University in 2006, Gina went on to become a visual merchandiser in home furnishings while continuing to teach ceramics part time. All her pieces are handmade in Cleveland, OH.

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they are a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice.
meet them at the door laughing and invite them in.

Be grateful for whatever comes.
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.

- Rumi

About Pinch

Pinch was founded in 1979 by three female potters who considered themselves renegades — they preferred to make pinch pots, didn't know how to throw, and didn't care to! In their spirit, Pinch continues to carry artists' work we find interesting, unconventional, and beautiful. 

Supporting the artists we buy from, displaying their work beautifully, and providing heart-felt customer service, is our mission. Thank you so much for your support for our small business and the many artists we are proud to represent.
