Tina Curry is known for figurative ceramic sculpture. Subject matter includes human and animal forms. Curry's most frequent subject is horses. Each piece uses a stoneware clay body and slab-construction method.

Curry develops earth-toned surfaces using saggar, pit, and/or raku firing methods. Raku fired surfaces are often developed using the horse-hair technique, where a work is removed from the kiln at the red hot stage and transferred to a covered container with horse-hair fill which burns off creating an oxidation environment. The resulting effects include surface with smoke-black crimped lines from the burned horse hair.
