Rat City Studios is located in White Center, Washington and is the studio and home of, studio potter, Deb Schwartzkopf. She bought the space in 2013 and turned it into the community it is today: a haven for a small group of like-minded ceramic artists to make artwork and build relationships. Her mission is to build the community of artists working in clay through offering studio assistant positions for emerging artists working in clay. She also aims to build the larger community through teaching clay classes, hosting social and educational events, and maintaining a lively career in the ceramic arts!
Within this creative atmosphere studio members support each other by sharing workspace and collective knowledge. As a group they often showcase their ceramic artwork at local venues. Drinking from a handmade cup is special and something everyone should experience!
Rat City Studios consists of a residential home property. Within this space there are with two studio work areas, a well-equipped kiln yard, and garden space. Studio assistants join the studio through a year-long, work-trade agreement. They offer their time helping with facility maintenance, and assist Deb with her work, for studio space. This is a professional exchange aimed at fusing experiential learning with the practice of art making.
