Richard Fairbanks

American, (1929–1989)
American studio potter and teacher Richard Fairbanks studied at the University of Washington under Paul Bonifas, earning a BA in 1953 and at Mills College under Antonio Preito, earning an MA in 1955. A Fulbright Scholarship enabled him to study at the Institute of Industrial Arts in Helsinki, Finland in 1959-60. He taught at Mills College from 1954-55, Drake University from 1956-59 and 1960-63 and at Central Washington University from 1963-89. Inspired by his experiences in Finland and his research in Eastern Europe in 1986, Fairbanks made wheel-thrown, vessel-based work from a coarse stoneware clay.
