Fireborn Gallery, owned by Daniel Vito and Donna Hetrick, features pottery handmade on the premises, plus handblown glass, jewelry, and other fine crafts...all of which are handmade by American artists.
Fireborn pottery, made by Daniel Vito, is sold exclusively at Fireborn Gallery.
His work includes unique one-of-a-kind pieces, large show pieces, dinnerware and serving pieces, tea and sushi ware, mugs, bowls, sculpture, wall-hangings, and experimental designs and glazes.
Daniel has been making pottery since 1972.
Pure white porcelain clay is usually used, creating the ideal background for Fireborn's high-fired, vibrant, Asian-inspired glazes, such as chun, celadon, tenmoku, shino, and copper red.
Each piece has been designed and created with concern for function and durability, so you will enjoy your selection for years to come.
Fireborn Studios is located in Pittsburgh's historic South Side, between the Birmingham and Hot Metal Bridges, on the corner of 24th and Sarah Street. See Map.
Four classes are held year-round in a functioning artist's studio, with over 30 gorgeous, high-fire glazes to choose from and great instruction.

Dear Fireborn, Mr. Vito and everyone there in PA,
I write to you from Cape Cod. Years ago I got a bowl with the name Fireborn scrawled into the bottom. A few weeks ago it slipped out of my hands while I was washing it and broke in the sink. It's my favorite bowl. I know it probably sounds weird but this bowl inspired me to cook. I loved it. My daughter and I made cookies, breads, pancakes...everything and it brought me joy in the kitchen. It's been a tough couple of years and this bowl breaking just devastated me. I'm hoping I can replace it somehow. I'm including a picture. After looking through everything on your site I guess it's the Glacier glaze. The bottom of the bowl measured about 4.5 inches and the top probably about 12 inches and it was about 5 inches high. I hope I can replace this bowl. Can you please help?
