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 a visiting artist studios/ transitional space. Through these endeavors, people are brought together to connect with each other and feed their creativity. Join the Rat Race!
