Visit this historic ceramic art studio.
Salty Dog Studios has seen over 60 artists since its establishment in 1975 and has approximately 20 artists actively working at the studio. The studio was started when 5 ceramic artists set up shop in the building, originally the site for Superior Biscuit Company, in 1927. The graduates put in a lot of time and effort into refurbishing the building into a place where they could collaborate, create, work, and display art.
The work evidently paid off, as it now stands as the oldest cooperative in Seattle. This studio has various art displays, and they hold events throughout the year. The art mainly focuses on ceramics, but you'll also find a few other pieces such as watercolor. Some of their events even include hands-on experiences where you can go through the final stages of the ceramic experience. Some of the pieces you can expect to find include plates, cups, bowls, tea kettles, vases, and other miscellaneous art.
You can tell each work of art was built with love, care, and skill by the artist. Any piece that you want to purchase would be a welcome display in your home. Each one features unique colors and designs.
