Gina DeSantis (she/her) has been working in clay for over 24 years. In 2013 she made the leap to full time artist and educator. After the pandemic Gina closed her classroom and began to focus solely on the role of artist.
You may have seen her work in Midwest Living, Cleveland Magazine, Edible Cleveland, Uncommon Goods, Anthropologie, McGee & Company and Sundance Catalog.
The Product & Process:
Gina’s studio is located in the Lake Erie Building (known as the Screw Factory Artists thanks to its history as a former screw manufacturer and established as the Templar Auto Plant). She works with her talented team to create high end ceramic vessels for the home and table.
When Gina is not at the studio she is hanging with her rescue dogs Fey and Phinn.
