This impressively handsome William Wyman Studio high-sided bowl measures 4" high by 7.5" in diameter. It is a hand-crafted stoneware pot, well made with a nice heft. It has a bowl form with a simple rolled rim. Best of all, it is glazed in a rich reddish-brown glaze laced with blue hues and finished to a glossy sheen. It is signed 'Wyman' 64 for 1964. This pot is in original studio condition, with the usual nuances of hand-crafted pots, and rings like a bell. This pot feels great in hand, a very high quality pot with a great look and feel. As a Master Potter, I trust Wyman had 'clay' in his veins.

William Wyman (1922-1980) received his master's degree at Columbia University, with post-graduate studies at Alfred University, N.Y. In 1953, he was a studio potter on Cape Cod and was also a professor of ceramic studies at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Wyman taught ceramics at Drake University, the University of Maryland, and Massachusetts College of Art.

In 1962, he co-founded Herring Run Pottery in East Weymouth, Massachusetts with fellow potter Michael Cohen.

Wyman's ceramic works can be found in numerous collections and museums including: Addison Gallery of American Art, Andover, Massachusetts Brooklyn Museum of Art, Brooklyn, New York Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, New Hampshire Des Moines Art Center, Des Moines, Iowa Everson Museum of Art, Syracuse, New Hampshire Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, New York Minneapolis Institute of Art, Minneapolis, Minnesota Museum of Arts and Design, New York, New York Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts Newark Museum, Newark, New Jersey Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Smithsonian American Art Museum, Renwick Gallery, Washington, D.C.
