More About RCS!
Rat City Studios began as Deb Schwartzkopf’s drive to have a personal studio where she could make work and hold workshops. As she mentored assistants it became clear that they needed a space to invest time in their individual artistic practice. In 2013, Deb purchased her home and studio in West Seattle. Rat City Studios has now evolved into a communal clay establishment. It is home to Deb’s production pottery studio, communal pottery education classroom, 3 semiprivate artist assistant studios, and 3 artist rental/ visiting artist studios/ transitional spaces. Through these endeavors, people are brought together to connect with each other and feed their creativity.
