Small stoneware BASKETS have a lovely sense of fullness and calm, which you can feel when you hold one. Steve creates these bowls in two parts. He begins with a simple hand-formed clay bowl as the base. Then, he stretches a rectangular clay slab into a long "ribbon" and wraps and pinches it around the bowl's base. The gesture is both calculated and spontaneous and makes each bowl a one-of-a-kind piece.
