Collins Lane Art was established in 2001 by partners Tim Frain and Garry Kugler. Our business specializes in wheel-thrown and slab-formed functional pottery. Potter Tim Frain has been working with clay for over 30 years and has been cooking even longer so his work reflects a blend of both these passions.
Tim believes that pottery should be functional as well as beautiful, so we feature many multi-functional pieces such as the Baker/Server, Veggie Steamer/Serving Bowl, Pasta/Pie Plate and Wine Cooler/Utensil Holder. Plates, platters, serving bowls, mugs, tumblers and even complete dinner services are also available. Because all our pottery is oven, microwave and dishwasher safe these pieces are intended to go from the oven or cooktop directly to the dining table..... well designed for preparation and beautiful for presentation! Recipes are also included with many of these items and they make perfect gifts for all occasions.
We believe that good design and beauty don't have to be beyond the reach of anyone; so our pottery is moderately priced. We hope that you will browse through our website and enjoy Tim's work. We update our site as new products and glazes are developed and added to our product line.
