Father Ryan Arts Center





Father Don Fisher began his pottery career in the mid 1960s. He was self taught through mentoring, books, magazines and workshops - and lots of practice; first in a pottery co-op in New York City then in a home studio.

In the mid 1980s his skills were enhanced and refined at Indiana Unversity of Pennsylvania (IUP) where he earned his graduate degree in art (MA in Art) magoring in ceramics.

Following IUP graduation, his love for pottery continued in workshops, gallery shows and benefits.

In 2008, Don joined the staff of artists at the Father Ryan Arts Center where he continues to teach pottery.
