Grind and Glaze

Grind and Glaze is inspired by the tactile processes of milling and pottery, along with the rural upbringing that informed designer Tessa Clark. A graduate of the DAAP Program at the University of Cincinnati, Clark is devoted to uplifting the standards of fashion in Cincinnati. Designed and produced locally, Grind and Glaze focuses on sustainable and ethically-crafted garments, refining traditional wardrobe staples and reimagining them with modern sensibilities. Raised in a restored barn house adjacent to a historic flour mill, Clark imbues her brand with the whimsy and fascination with nature that defined her childhood.
