Radca Ranch Lodge now open for group stays!

Stay in our rustic lodge in the hills

Have a relaxing stay in our newly converted horse barn with all modern amenities with the down-home comfy feel. Our 36 acre property in beautiful Tuscarawas county, Ohio is the historic birthplace of baseball legend Cy Young. It is a multi function lodge for family gathering, team building or business meetings.

The lodge features a fully equipped kitchen with a gas range, dishwasher, refrigerator/freezer, a bar area with stools and all of your basic kitchen needs. The dining area has a large table to seat 10 and comfy cushioned chairs. Sleep in 4 comfortable bedrooms with XL twin beds (which could be converted to a king), with two bathrooms, a covered back porch with outdoor charcoal grill. 

Enjoy the rolling hills, the pond and even walk up the hill to my ceramic artist studio invite for exploration. With advance notice, you may plan a time to tour the studio.
Fishing, hiking, tobogganing, cross country skiing or perfect star gazing, great for a rustic getaway.

Tom Radca, Ceramic Artist

Tom Radca

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.
