Justin Rothshank

Earthenware Pottery with Decals 

Select pieces available in our online shop!

Justin Rothshank is a ceramic artist working in Goshen, Indiana. His functional and decorative pottery utilizes custom-made laser decals, china paints, lusters and commercial decals for embellishment. Rothshank uses earthenware clay which is wheel-thrown before being fired in an electric kiln, often several times, to achieve the multiple layers of decals on some of his pieces.

New from Justin and new at PINCH this Fall are the gorgeous bird mugs shown above and new face mugs below: Beyonce, Bob Ross, and Dylan.

Rothshank says he “particularly enjoys the organic edges and unique feel of each piece that I make.” His ceramic work has been exhibited and published internationally including articles in Ceramics Monthly, American Craft, Studio Potter and Neue Keramik. Rothshank has been a presenter, panelist, visiting artist, and artist-in-residence at numerous universities, schools, conferences and art centers throughout the United States and abroad.
