Wyman (1922- 1980) studied at Massachusetts College of Art and at Alfred University and earned an M.A. from Columbia. By 1958 he was an assistant professor at Mass. In 1960 he opened the Herring Run Pottery, producing utilitarian stoneware for which he became widely known, the work ranging from hanging planters to architectural murals. At the same time he was producing more expressive or even spiritual works. In 1965 after time spent in Honduras he began to create undecorated, unglazed geometric driven structures inspired by Mayan ruins which he called “Temples”.
