Two Tone Studios is the collaboration between husband and wife team Boyd Sugiki and Lisa Zerkowitz. The work created by this team blends contemporary design, and everyday utility.
Sugiki and Zerkowitz met as graduate students at the Rhode Island School of Design in the mid nineties. After completing their degrees, they moved to Seattle, where they operate Two Tone Studios. Their work takes them all over the United States, Canada and overseas, for retail and wholesale shows, exhibitions, teaching opportunities and as visiting artists.
In the United States they have traveled as visiting artists or instructors to the following places:
Appalachian Center for Crafts, Bay Area Glass Institute, California College of Arts and Crafts, Emporia State University, Firehouse No. 12, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Penland School of Crafts, Pilchuck Glass School, Pittsburgh Glass School, Pratt Fine Arts Center, Public Glass, Rhode Island School of Design, San Jose State University, Southern Illinois University, Third Degree Glass, University of Hawaii, and Virginia Commonwealth University.
Beyond our borders, they have traveled to Turkey's Glass Furnace, both Korea's Kookmin University and Korea National University of the Arts, Japan's Toyama Glass Art Institute as well as Kanazu Forest of Creation, and Alberta College of Art and Design in Canada.
