RUTKOWSKY POTTERY

Burnsville, NC

Member since 1989

I make a wide array of functional and decorative forms. My pots are an extension of my love for the process and medium of clay, slips, and glazes, all of which I have formulated and continue to make from the raw materials. I decorate my unfired ware with slips using trailing, brushing, and fingercombing patterns I have developed over time. Celadon glazes are fired to cone 10 in a reduction atmosphere bringing the layers to the surface for a unified body & glaze layer. The outcome is never 100% predictable, the firing has its way with the pots.
