Bruce Fairman, Potter, Designer, Alchemist

Bruce Fairman is a graduate of Sacramento State University in Studio Art and initially trained as a production potter for ten years. He was one of the chief designers for Doris Designs, a porcelain jewelry manufacturer. Bruce has studied classic vessel forms since the beginning of his career.

All of Bruce’s pottery is made from precelain or white stoneware clay. Every piece is individually created by hand on his potter’s wheel. Each shape is designed to capture both elegance and classical oriental simplicity while ultimately displaying Bruce’s dazzling signature glazes. Bruce has spent many years developing his exotic glazes. The glazes contain gold, platinum or titanium. This unique glazing technique, similar to the art glass popular in the 1920s has been perfected by only a handful of artisans in the country.
