Cone 10 reduction fired stoneware with an earthy yet lively feel! I work in partnership with husband, Michael Rutkowsky, and we make our glazes, slips, and clay bodies from scratch. I make a wide array of daily use pottery forms as well as ‘specialty use’ forms such as butter keepers, lidded salt keepers, condiment pots, lamps, garden bells, piggy banks, and animal-form vases. My glazes are uniquely layered as well as trailed to include flowing designs and dots patterns. I also etch through layered slips and create custom wording & designs for special occasions (weddings) as well as for daily inspiration (“prayer balls”).
