Michael & Ruth Rutkowsky Pottery features two potters working together to create beautiful stoneware for daily use.

Since 1979 Michael Rutkowsky has produced reduction fired stoneware designed and handmade at Pond Branch Pottery. Mixing clay and glazes by his own formula and combining the materials with his personal techniques to create functional stoneware with contemporary appeal. Michael has been hand making pottery for more than 40 years. Each piece is signed and dated by Michael. All work is non-toxic, safe for oven, dishwasher and microwave use. Its uses are only limited by your imagination.

Ruth Rutkowsky produces high fired reduction stoneware with rich earth tone glazes that are safe for use in the microwave, dishwasher, and oven! I enjoy creating pottery for use in every day ‘rituals’ such as coffee and tea time as well as beautiful pottery for everyday use, baking, serving, and illuminating (lamps and luminaries). I believe that life is truly enriched when hand made crafts are incorporated!
