Rick Bisgyer

Rick Bisgyer developed an appreciation for fine ceramic art in his youth, surrounded by his parents’ collection of contemporary pottery. He finally got his hands in clay at Glen Echo Pottery, a community art studio outside of Washington DC, and it was not long before he built the first pottery wheel at his high school and started teaching his classmates the basics. That love of teaching has carried through his life, earning him a Bachelor of Science in Education at Georgia State University, and teaching positions in a variety of settings. For the past 8 years Rick has been a full time ceramic artist working in porcelain. He has been represented by fine craft galleries across the country and has juried into some of the nation’s most prestigious craft shows. Throughout this time he has continued his commitment to community arts, helping to create and enhance community art organizations, and enjoying the rewards of teaching in them.

Rick Bisgyer, my porcelain teacher, has the drive and skilled technique to create quality porcelain objects with a strong sense of form that really represent the essence of the maker. He encourages his students with exploration and technique to be open to the possibilities of their own creativity.” Lynne Molner, artist and teacher.
