Trick a Witch, Wed a Hedgehog, Save Your Soul: An American Artist Encounters Poland is a poetic and artistic journey into the world of Polish folklore and culture through original versions of tales and ceramic sculpture.
After the fall of Communism in Poland, Rzezotarski’s husband, George, had an amazing first meeting with Polish cousins, who introduced the American cousins to the rich world of Polish and familial history—so intertwined as to become a microcosm.
Rzezotarski brings an outsider’s awareness and an artist’s intuition. “It is my hope that through my encounter with Poland and my artistic interpretations, I can share these tales of family, of national identity, and of the deeper world of myth, legend, and fairytale.”
