At Gina DeSantis Ceramics, our mission is to craft functional, timeless ceramics that transform everyday moments into extraordinary experiences. We believe in the power of handcrafted design and its ability to infuse beauty into the mundane. Our pieces are not just products; they are heirlooms, designed to be cherished and passed down through generations. We aspire to create a legacy of craftsmanship that transcends time and trends, fostering a deep connection between our creations and the homes they grace.

Every piece is designed and thrown by Gina herself, with her dedicated team assisting in various aspects such as trimming, handling mugs, glaze development, glazing pots, firing work and working on hand-built items. The hands-on involvement of the entire team ensures that each product proudly carries the 'Made in USA' tag.
