Boyd Sugiki and Lisa Zerkowitz
Two Tone Studios creates contemporary designed hand blown glass objects with a nod to the past. Each unique design is handcrafted by husband and wife team Boyd Sugiki and Lisa Zerkowitz, who met as graduate students at the Rhode Island School of Design. The work they create includes decorative accessories and tabletop items such as pitchers, drink ware, bowls, vases, cake stands and covered dishes. Their designs blend clean simple lines with a fresh color pallet to produce beautiful hand made objects that people can live with each day and enjoy fully.
The company name, Two Tone Studios, refers to the use of color as well as the two voices behind the work. Both Sugiki and Zerkowitz are well known throughout the glass community and have been invited to many prestigious institutions to lecture and demonstrate in this country and abroad. Their studio is located in Seattle, surrounded by gardens and native plants of the Pacific Northwest.
