Art to Table CSA

Handmade Porcelain Tableware by
Rat City Studios | Deb Schwartzkopf

 
 

Our CSA idea draws from the well known system of local farms offering seasonal produce directly to individuals. Rather than being agricultural, our CSA is Community Supported Art. Each month, receive a finely crafted, handmade porcelain plate(s) delivered to your doorstep. Rat City Studios monthly subscriptions is beginning with plates, but stay tuned. This will be an evolving project! Serve your meals beautifully! 

Every Plate is Different! Serve Handmade.

Receive:  Each month, receive a finely crafted, handmade porcelain plate delivered to your doorstep. You get the joy of working directly with Rat City Studios. You may set up your subscription to fit your dining desires. Collect a full place setting for twelve for a celebratory meal, or simply one or  two plates, for a small breakfast brunch. Add a touch of color to your meals!

Plate Care:  Set your table the potters way.  Bring art to the table with every meal.  Each plate is made at Rat City Studios by our crew.  They may be put in the dishwasher or microwave.  They are quite durable. If they are treated with care and do not bump together in the dishwasher, they will last longer, of course...  Fast heating like a stove top burner,  pre-heated oven, or toaster-oven will crack the pottery.

Payments: Purchase online via the RCS website while dining at Babirusa (take your plate home/ free shipping) or the comfort of your home.  There is a link on our website homepage. You will receive an email from us to set up secure payments, if you elect to start a subscription. Payments must be made before the 15th to receive that month’s plate. Shipping is not included in your subscription. You may select to receive one or more plate(s) per month for as many months as you would like. Cancel your subscription after the shipment at any time simply stopping payment.

Shipping: Plate(s) will be shipped the end of each month. Shipping is only available to the US and Canada.
Shipping fees are not included in the price.  We will calculate shipping via USPS.  This variable amount will be added to your monthly bill.

SAFE- Studio Assistant Funding Endeavor:  Career path development for artists is complex and untaught. Studio assistants are seeking career path guidance, support, and learning opportunities as they take the next step growing their artwork, professionalism, and network. Your purchase of plates directly aids in the development of emerging artists at Rat City Studios. Follow the link for more information about the SAFE- the Studio Assistant Funding Endeavor ...
