Launching online today, Robert Fishman is Potter of the Month for February 2019
Robert has been making pots since 1970. After earning a BA in 1974 from Rhode Island College, he accepted an apprenticeship at the Leach Pottery, where he studied and worked with Bernard and Janet Leach from 1976-1978.
In 1980 he opened his own private studio in North Scituate, RI, from where he creates his wheel-thrown pottery, marrying exceptional decoration and glaze techniques with functional tableware and studio pieces.
In July 2018 the Leach Pottery presented the exhibition ‘Reunion’ as part of our 10 Year anniversary celebrations, which included working potters, who had formerly trained or worked alongside Bernard Leach at the Pottery. The pots presented here were part of that exhibition.
