This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born Belpre, Kansas in 1902 and died Manhattan, Kansas, July 8, 1991, John Pharo was a ceramist, lithographer, painter and teacher.   He was a pupil of William Dickerson, B.J. O. Nordfeldt, and E. Bruce Moore.

While working for the U.S. Post Office, he joined the Wichita Art Association School as a volunteer in the 1930s.  He became a ceramics instructor there in 1947 and head of the ceramics department in 1949, a position he held for 26 years.

He dug and processed his own clay in order to have total control over the pottery process.  Pharo worked on multiple wheels and fired pieces three or four times.  He retired from the Wichita Art Association in 1973.
