July 4th Weekend at Radca Ranch

Take a drive to the country June 30th to July 4th, 10AM - 5PM to see our nearly complete Workshop Lodge and browse through our numerous ceramic treasures. Tour our 7,000 sq ft of studio space, and head up to the hayloft to see some oldies but goodies - and hundreds of individual tiles.  We even have a Bronze plate, a real garden piece with a beautiful green patina.   It's just waiting to find a home - use on a wall, pedestal or even make into a birdbath!

We have exciting new activities this year - silent auctions each day with numerous pieces of artwork. Have some fun and perhaps take home a bargain.

And while you are there check out our nearly complete Radca Ranch Lodge, the new guesthouse for our upcoming ceramics workshops.

So put on your farm shoes and come on out. Light refreshments will be served.

Ceramic Artist

For years, Tom Radca's pottery designs have been treasured for their marvelous depth of color and lusterous highlights. Expertly handcrafted in the artisan's rural Ohio barn studio, Radca's trademark large scale designs feature 36" diameter plates and vessels measuring up to 60" in height.

Beginning at the potter's wheel, Radca often works with as much as 50 pounds of clay. The warmth and splendor of Radca's pieces are attributed to his carefully developed firing process. Color and effects result from controlling the temperature of firing and by introducing combustible materials to the kiln environment near the end of the firing process - a process he calls "Painting with Fire."

After the pots are fired and allowed to cool, Radca applies muratic acid that eats away at carbon buildup and exposes the color underneath. It took years of exploration for Radca to perfect this technique, as well as his unique firing process.
