About this Artist
"Each time a kiln is opened, there is something new a color change, a different texture of clay. Many of my favorite pieces were gifts from the fire."
Steven J. Murphys work is influenced by the forms and techniques of the Japanese art of Yakimono, the spirit of the tea ceremony, and the beauty of Asian cuisine. His colors come from a variety of natural sources, including Asian, British, and American clays, African and American minerals, and ashes from leaves, wood, rice straw, and volcanoes. These materials, along with Murphys special firing process, combine to produce a wide range of effects.» View the full artist page of Steve Murphy
