Meet The Artisan

Oysteria Inc. is an oyster plate and accessories company founded in 2010 by friends Monique Chauvin and Leslie Stidd Massony, who teamed up creatively when Leslie joined the staff at Mitch's Flowers, owned by Monique Chauvin. They loved to challenge themselves artistically beyond their acclaimed floral talents. . Their works reflect their love of New Orleans, its culinary culture and decorative arts. All their pieces are handcrafted, fired in NOLA and made to be used, enjoyed and collected. Leslie's life-long love of oysters helped shape their artistic focus. According to Leslie, "being a real New Orleans girl, an oyster was my first solid food!" And when she and Monique were asked to come up with a plate design for a gift ...Oysteria, Inc. was born. Although only established in 2010, Oysteria products are now coveted by New Orleanians as well as fans across the country.
