Featured Artist

Steve Hemingway

Steve Hemingway

Steve Hemingway, a Michigan native, has been residing in Minnesota for twenty years. He is an accomplished artist in several mediums, but specializes in the ceramic arts, most often raku fired vessels, decorative wall mandalas, and sculptural pieces. Steve’s work is influenced by the forces, and delicacy of nature, rhythm, world cultures, and geography. The clay has become a canvas to portray an emotion, metaphor, or idea in a three dimensional work of art with great attention to detail, texture, and surface decoration. Steve’s commissions can be found in many local corporate settings, and national private collections.
