Two Tone Studios
Boyd Sugiki was first introduced to glass at Punahou High School in Honolulu, HI, where he was raised. He went on to receive a BFA in Glass from California College of Arts and Crafts and a MFA in Glass from Rhode Island School of Design.
Lisa Zerkowitz has a Bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from the University of California, Santa Barbara, not far from her native Los Angeles. She received her Master’s degree in Art Education from the Rhode Island School of Design while simultaneously completing the undergraduate program in Glass.
In 2007, they founded Two Tone Studios in the West Seattle neighborhood of Seattle, WA. They chose to establish their studio in the Pacific Northwest to be a part of the rich glass community that exists in the region. Their studio name refers to the use of color as well as the two voices behind the work. Each piece is designed and hand made by Sugiki and Zerkowitz, from sketch to finished piece. They are well known throughout the glass community and have been invited to many prestigious institutions to lecture and demonstrate in this country and abroad.
