about our store

For over 30 years, Freehand Gallery has been devoted to Fine American Craft. We currently represent over 300 artists who live and work in the United States.

From the famous artist to the emerging artist - and from coast to coast - our eclectic group of fine craftsmen and artists has filled Freehand Gallery with a spectacular and unique array of one of a kind gifts you'll be proud to give (and tempted to keep!). You will consistently find a wide range of handmade ceramics, handblown glass, hand crafted wood, fiber-based work including clothing and accessories, metal-based art and jewelry finely crafted using precious and semi-precious stones.

With art objects ranging from functional to decorative and from traditional to modern, there will always be something new and interesting to discover. Whether you choose to shop online or in person, our knowledgeable gallery staff are ready to help you with your shopping needs.

With an emphasis on functional craft and a commitment to serving the Los Angeles community, I opened Freehand on West Third Street in 1980, when the neighborhood was just beginning to undergo a revival. Despite warnings that a store carrying handmade pieces could not survive, I was determined to offer the finest craft to what soon became a loyal clientele.

There were no other shops like Freehand at that time and the customers welcomed the opportunity to own pieces made by artists whom they came to know. I like to think of Freehand as a family where the customers are as important as the artists. In what has become a fast-paced, drag and drop world, Freehand is a haven where there is only one degree of separation between the maker and the client.

If you find yourself in Los Angeles, please visit us at our original location on West Third Street. If you prefer to shop online, enjoy browsing the website and contact us if you have questions.
We love to talk to our customers!
