Steve is from the Bay Area, CA. His interest in wheel-throwing initially pulled him into the medium, however, over time he has grown to explore and incorporate elements of handbuilding, moldmaking and even printmaking into his work as well. Beginning by taking classes at a city college and working for years in studios as assistants and technicians, he soon found himself teaching classes full-time. For over a decade, Steve has been instructing students through classes and workshops. Currently Steve's studio is in Oakland, CA.
