About Fireborn Studios

Family-owned and operated studio
specializing in functional pottery
and pottery classes

For over 40 years, Daniel Vito and Donna Hetrick have been potters, gallery owners, and teachers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. They feature their own pottery in their gallery along with work from other regional and national potters and glass blowers.

They also offer pottery classes in their studio, where they share their skills and glazes with over 80 dedicated students ranging from beginners to professionals.

They are noted for their gorgeous glazes and pottery that transcends functionality. Their work is a pleasure to touch, adorns tables and living spaces, celebrates cooking and serving, and can make the simple act of eating a bowl of soup or having a cup of coffee a more pleasant experience. Zen, Feng Shui, Wabi-sabi, and tactile/visual pleasure happen.

A lifetime of experience has allowed them to become masters of their craft. They can make the difficult look easy. And they have learned that one lifetime is not enough when you love your work and are constantly growing and learning.

"Whether you want to buy pottery or take a pottery class, Fireborn Studios is the place to go in Pittsburgh. The gallery showcases Dan Vito's work but also sells work by other local potters and has a good selection of handblown glass. Pottery classes are offered during the day or in the evening. The instruction is fabulous, the glaze selection is extensive, and firings are consistently spot on."
