Karen Gayle Tinney is a Long Beach, CA based artist and designer. Karen's collection of ceramic and fiber home decor is the product of her passion for mixed material design and interest in fiber art. Each piece is meticulously crafted by the artist in her Long Beach studio; some pieces taking months to fully complete. The ceramic components are hand built piece by piece, then assembled together with their fiber counterparts.
One of a Kind collections are released through the artist's website periodically and are composed of large scale sculptural objects and wall decor. These large scale art pieces serve as the inspiration for Karen's production line which includes smaller scale, functional pieces and decorative objects that are available through stockists (listed below) and online.
Karen holds a degree in product design from Parsons School of Design. She worked professionally as a home decor designer for seven years in New York City and Philadelphia before launching her own collection.
Commissions or inquiries about special collaborations are always welcome.
