ChreegooAndPiruShop began in 2014 in New Orleans, Louisiana where the married team of Geraldine Brezca (Piru) and Christian Schirach (Chreegoo) joined forces in ceramics and plant scapes.
We are both creators as Geraldine works within yoga, pottery, photography and film productions while Christian’s focus has been with carpentry, creating furniture as well as being a knowledgeable chef, music and art curator. Now we are able to combine our visions and create unique ceramics with character. Geraldine’s passion for working with clay is inspired by nature and its inhabitants with stoneware honoring different fish and birds in a series, as well as our popular alligator series, totem and water fountains. In PiruAndChreegooShop you will find vibrant stoneware ceramics. Christian's eye for rare vintage pottery, planters and other clever finds are also incorporated with various cactus and plants, that we buy locally and grow. Plus, as an added bonus, you will find must have organic spices, #ChiracSpice & #TridoshaChiracs, that are delicious on everything!
We take custom orders.
We don't ship plants. We deliver in town and you are welcome to come shop at our porch/shop!

Nature— the oaks. Hanging in the backyard, watching the birds. Chreegoo is committed to feeding them, so in the nest nearby we see the babies around during the summer. We see falcons standing on a post near our kitchen window. Their nest is on a pine tree nearby. Also, the music that vibrates in the city.

Burn palo santo, play music and improvise, listen what the clay wants to became.

What is something people don’t know about you? A fun fact.
Chreegoo took a picture in front of the door of my house in Argentina 7 years before we met. He was visiting Buenos Aires from New Orleans. One day 6 months after we started dating, he showed me his BA pictures and when I saw my house I said, "Stop!" We couldn't believe it—magic exists.
