Rudy, Lynita, & Anna Zajack
Rudy, Lynita and their daughter Anna, work together in the studio making hanging bird ornaments for the garden, yard and home. The birds are decorated using molds, found objects and stamps, purchased and hand made. The birds are then stained and glazed in a multitude of colors. Rudy, a retired nurse, and Anna, a stay-at-home mom spend hours choosing the right glass, ceramic and metal beads to use before they bend the wire and let their inner Dr. Suess come out. Each bird is whimsical and one of a kind.
Lynita started in clay with a Saturday adult enrichment course 30 years ago. Rudy kept asking for a bigger bowl so she challenged him to take the class with her. Before long he was making bigger bowls and she moved to slab and multimedia. Their daughter, Anna, took classes in clay at Crater High School and was soon helping the teacher as a classroom aide.
