Bruce Fairman’s studio is in Sacramento, California in a flourishing artist colony. All of Bruce’s pottery is made from either porcelain or white stoneware clay, and each piece is created individually by hand on a potter’s wheel. Each shape is designed to capture both elegance and classical Oriental simplicity, while ultimately highlighting Bruce’s signature glazes.
The glazes used by Fairman he developed himself over years of trial and error, and receive their unique colors and hues from the additional minerals added to the glaze. Fairman’s work has been shown in invitational exhibitions throughout the United States, and his pieces have been featured in galleries as far away as Hong Kong.
Not only does Bruce have a thriving pottery business of his own, he works with the Khmer Artisan Project in Cambodia. This non-profit seeks to help local potters improve their craft to make their works more marketable to potential buyers. The average salary for a potter in Cambodia is less than USD$300 annually, and this program seeks to train potters to have a sustainable career and source of income.
