Every one of Rudkin Studio’s ceramic animal sculptures is handmade and unique, each with its own soul.

No piece is done until it looks as if it could hop, scurry, or bound off the sculpting table. 

Created using signature techniques

I love the natural colors and textures of clay and get much of my color from different-colored clay bodies. I finish my sculptures with stains and color washes that highlight the beauty of the clay. I also love antique toys and often build ceramic animal riders that give new life to old toys.
