ACGA ARTIST OF THE MONTH –
Throwing has always been Steve’s first love in clay. Despite the many creative turns his artwork has taken over the years, he has never strayed far from the wheel. It’s rare to find any of his work that doesn’t include a thrown element. Steve’s work is a cross section of techniques developed over more than thirty years that includes figurative, steampunk, books, trains, toys, whimsical animals, functional pottery, painting and Raku. Many of these items touch on identity, personal history, social, political and environmental concerns.
Steve owns and operates SMAart Gallery & Studio with 2 ceramic studios in San Francisco offering more than 5,000 square feet of studio space, classes, team building, membership and galleries.
