I was first introduced to Steve through his sculptural work at a gallery in Flagstaff. A year later we got to know each other at the Louisville, Kentucky NCECA. There I was introduced to his utilitarian ware at a different gallery. When he agreed to come and share his sophisticated and beautiful pottery I was thrilled. His work is also wood fired and as you can see from the pictures, the surfaces range from subtle ash and flame patterning to slightly crusty. I'm looking forward to including his work in my collection.
