Tina Frey Designs is world acclaimed for its hand-sculpted resin objects that range from fruit and candy dishes to plant and hanging vessels, and from variously shaped bowls to serving boards.
The pieces in the collection are hand sculpted by Tiny Frey in San Francisco, beginning with an idea that is cohesive with the rest of the collection. When a clay design is completed, hand-made molds are created for each object.
As the company’s website describes, “the molds are used to cast each item individually by hand in small batches by color. Slight color variations between batches contribute to the beauty and uniqueness of each piece.
“After the pieces are cast and removed from the mold, they are hand sanded. In this way, we can ensure the quality and integrity of each piece.”
New to the line this year is a brown Champagne cooler bucket that’s crafted with an opaque effect. Dishwasher safe, it’s ideal for summertime events ranging from picnics to weddings, and its knotted leather handles make it easy to carry your favorite sparkling, rosé and blush wines—well chilled—from place to place.
Last we checked, the bucket was priced at $215, and available online from Barney’s at www.barneys.com.
