Fred Kimmelstiel makes hand thrown and hand built ceramics with a variety of clays from porcelain to stoneware experimenting with both glazes and firing techniques to achieve the most appealing results.

His work reflects his attention to detail coupled with a strong desire to incorporate practical function into stylized vessels that enrich the home. He draws inspiration from nature and family heirlooms which he integrates into his designs.

He creates functional pottery including fruit and salad bowls, serving plates, coffee mugs, tea cups, pitchers and vases. His reduction-fired ceramics are made with intricate carvings and/or glazed in a distinctive style for maximal effect.
