Tina Frey Designs Inspiration for the designs come from many things: The shapes are inspired by organic forms in nature and objects found in travels around the world. The colors are inspired by delicious translucent popsicles, candies, and jelly beans. The pieces in the collection are hand sculpted by Tina Frey in San Francisco, California. Sculpting starts with an idea that is cohesive with the rest of the collection. When the clay design is completed, hand-made molds are created for each object. 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. They are truly made with care. In this way, the quality and integrity of each piece are ensured.
