Born in 1952 in Chicago, Illinois, Chris Gustin grew up in Los Angeles, California, where he was surrounded by ceramics from an early age. His family were part owners of several commercial whiteware ceramic manufacturing companies. Spending his childhood around ceramic factories, it was an obvious choice for Gustin to go into the family business.
