Today on the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler I talk with Deb Schwartzkopf. For more than a decade she lived from coast to coast, studying ceramics and taking part in artist-in-residence programs. Deb’s circuitous path to setting up her studio represents a trend many itinerant potters of her generation experience. Upon returning home to Seattle, WA she bought a home and built Rat City Studios, named after the neighborhood in which she lives. In our interview we talk about utilizing criticism from a teacher to improve your work, returning to a challenging form for aesthetic resolution, and cultivating a garden and other hobbies that feed one’s studio practice.
