Earthborn Studios, Inc.

Earthborn pottery and its process developed over time, which yielded a product uniquely situated to custom design. Working one-on-one with the chef, insights to specific functionality can easily be translated into a finished vessel. The collaboration between the two artists yields a personal statement available in no other way. “Pottery has been my passion since my first introduction in high school in the ‘70s. Since then I’ve been in pursuit of the relationship between food, family, and fun as it applies to the vessel, which presents our sustenance in the Southern tradition of love around the table.” ---Tena Payne. Tena Payne developed Earthborn specifically to make plates for chefs. A coincidental meeting in 1997 led to the creation of tableware for the now-famous Hot and Hot Fish Club. Tena and her family currently create plating for over 100 properties worldwide. Made in Leeds, Alabama, and housed in a re-purposed watch factory, Earthborn Studios is a Certified Woman-Owned Business. Imbued with passion and commitment, each piece is hand-made with the exacting science required of the medium. It is hoped that Earthborn pottery creates a sense joy and happiness at unexpected moments.
