Steve Smith

Steve specialises in wheel-thrown porcelain. As an art student he never quite found his place in the usual artistic range. Something always seemed to be missing. He eventually chose a different path, closer to nature and discovered his passion for clay by pure chance. He has now come full circle, to a material as ancient as the Earth, and to a place that feels like home, behind a potter’s wheel. He is incredibly passionate about ceramics – ‘I pour my heart and soul into it. For me it’s both a meditative process and a constant challenge’. He defines his work as minimalist, favouring shapes that are simple yet sophisticated, with clean lines and a quiet but powerful presence that works in any decor.
