Vessels

Steven began his artistic career as a potter specializing in raku-fired vessels and fine dinnerware.
The glazes and forms he uses today are a result of decades of experimentation and practice
and often combine metal and other elements to add texture and visual interest to the pieces.

Steven's raku-fired ceramic "Wishing Vessel" is based upon a Chinese legend that holds: 
a wish placed within a lidded vessel comes true...when it is for the best.
