Tienie’s studio is situated in the countryside of the Schurveberg area near Hartebeespoort.
Here he worked to a six-day-a-week and nine-to-six schedule. He did all the modeling in clay, casting in Plaster of Paris and polishing of the bronze with the help of an assistant.
The only phase of his work that he did not handle personally was the casting in bronze process.
His studio is representative of a body of work that spans his lifetime.
