Welcome to Deb Schwartzkopf's Web Page!

Deborah Schwartzkopf is a full time studio potter working in Seattle, WA. She has developed a distinct approach to building her complex forms blending wheel thrown and hand built sections. Her pots marry the clean lines of modern architecture and the asymmetry of the natural world. Deborah stretches, cuts and folds clay into new and exciting utilitarian forms, challenging us to pay closer attention to the moments and objects that accent our day-to-day. Each piece is thoughtfully made by hand.  Serve your food beautifully!

All of Deborah’s work is made from porcelain and is fired in an electric kiln to cone six (This is around 2200F). The process page gives information about clay, building techniques, surface treatment and firing. Visit the artist info page to learn more about Deb or the Gallery Page to see past work.

Deb sells her work with Objective Clay online.  She is one of the 14 founding members.  
Their Mission: craft a hybird space for sharing ideas and new work. Check out their webpage where each artist has an online gallery, adds contect to the blog and as a group they create events and exhibitions!

Deb and George enjoy visitors!  Please contact the artist and make an appointment for a studio visit!
