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.

Deb Schwartzkopf’s aim is twofold. As a studio artist her goal is to make fabulous tableware that infuses life with purposeful beauty. The studio practice she has established provides a vehicle for her to continually learn about material, connect with community, and create intersections between ephemeral ideas and functional forms. As a community member and instructor she aims to use her unique skill set to offer educational opportunities- creating bridges to cross-pollinate communities both locally and nationally.
