Nothing elevates a room quite like a display of Ming vases. The wheel-thrown and handpainted masterpieces add a touch of antique charm to any decor, whether displayed alone or in multiples. So when we set out to create our collection, we went straight to the source – all the way in Jingdezhen, China. Artisans here have been producing handcrafted ceramics for 1,700 years, dating all the way back to the Ming dynasty.
Our collection is a mix of traditional Ming patterns intertwined with exclusive Iznik and concentric designs on classic shapes, in a variety of colors. When it comes to showing off your curated collection, the choices are endless. From mini clusters of various sizes and shapes throughout a room, to one destination for all your pieces, it’s hard to go wrong.
If you’re just starting a ceramic collection, the easiest way to create high impact is by displaying a collection of multiple shapes and sizes in one color. Our latest Aqua collection brings new life to Ming vases (and a reason for collectors to revisit their own displays).
Multiple pieces in complementary colors paired with similarly colored objects help modernize your collection. Integrating live florals in select pieces will give a display even more energy.
A bold collection of black and white ceramics yields a graphic display, despite the intricacy of the traditional patterns at play. The juxtaposition of antique style ceramics with the clean lines of a modern shelf is right at home in a contemporary setting.
Once you’ve arranged your own Ming ceramics, be sure to share your displays with the hashtag #LiveFrontgate.

An art form as old as antiquity… monograms have been making their mark since before the common era, dating all the way back to ancient Greece.

A story two decades in the making, Michael Mina’s professional biography is peppered with prestigious awards and more than 20 world-class restaurants. Capped by the October 2010 opening of MICHAEL MINA – his eponymous restaurant in San Francisco – Mina’s career highlights include being named 2005 Chef of the Year by both Bon Appétit and San Francisco Magazine. He was the International Food and Beverage Forum’s Restaurateur of the Year in 2005, and a James Beard Foundation “Who’s Who of Food & Beverage” inductee in 2013.
We are thrilled to introduce the Michael Mina Collection by Frontgate, a stunning selection of entertaining essentials inspired by the renowned restaurateur. From elegant beverage glasses to serveware, this is a beautiful culmination of passionate design, impeccable craftsmanship and Mina’s 20 years of culinary experience.
Nothing adds sophistication to a gathering like a delicious cocktail – especially when it’s crafted using Michael Mina’s stylish collection of Bar Essentials. Whether you’re making martinis, high balls, or even recreating a Cable Car from Michael’s Las Vegas restaurant, you’ll have everything you need to create and serve drinks like a professional mixologist.
This inspiring collection also includes serveware in a timeless black and gold palette. Keep craft beers and spritzers ice cold in the faux-leather wrapped beverage tub. Or serve your signature mixed drink in the beverage dispenser (complete with a chill-cell insert that prevents watered-down refills). Plus, you’ll always have plenty of hors d’oeuvres on hand with the Michael Mina Tiered Serving Stands. The set of four offers ample room for an assortment of appetizers and cocktail fixings.
Each piece in the Michael Mina collection, from the crystal glassware to the faux leather-wrapped serveware, offers professional-grade quality and style worthy of a world-class restaurant.
