About the Artist - TRACY FROITZHEIM
Tracy has been living in the Keys’s for over 20 years. Her and her
husband have been professional Yacht and Sportfish captains for
over 30 years fishing all over the East Coast , Bahamas, Caribbean
and Mexico. Recently retired she started creating her Fun Fused
Fish. Fishing has been her passion for so long that she decided to
apply that to a new artistic outlet. She has created her own version
of Reef, Pelagic & Tropical fish from memory and makes each and
every one to be unique with a personality of its own. The process
starts by conceiving the design, painstakingly cutting the glass ,
adding multiple layers of glass sometimes including dichroic, and then
firing each piece. After a day of cooling from the 1400 degree kiln,
she chooses matching decorator hand blown glass beads with
hanging wire to add a special touch in the end. Each piece is
signed and unique .
Tracy has taken many commissions and welcomes the challenge
of creating pieces of art designed just for you, there is no limit
to her imagination.
I hope you will enjoy these new pieces of art hand made from the
Florida Keys. And stay tuned for future creations and please
feel free to contact her with any questions .
Best wishes and Fishes from the Florida Keys,
