Tina Frey

San Francisco, CA

Tina Frey draws inspiration from many sources. The fluid lines of her silhouettes are reminiscent of the blue sea, while the organic contours of each piece emulate the curves of nature. Creativity blooms from treasures found during travel, and mouthwatering colors spring from many sources, such as translucent popsicles and scrumptious jelly beans.

The pieces in the collection are hand sculpted by Tina Frey in San Francisco. Sculpting starts with an idea focusing on simplicity and function.

The idea serves as the backbone while Tina sculpts each piece in clay. Hand made molds are created from each design and are used to cast the vessels in small batches by color. Each piece is hand sanded and carries a unique beauty that ensures the quality and integrity of each piece.

People find many uses for the items and it starts out with one piece and then the collecting starts since they all go so well together when they discover how functional they are."
