Steven Forbes de Soule

Biography to Display: 

EDUCATION

1980 Master of Visual Arts and Ceramics, Georgia State University, Atlanta, Georgia

PRIMARY WORK EXPERIENCE

1980—Studio potter

 

Steven Forbes de Soule is known for wheel-thrown raku fired vessel forms. After throwing, DeSoule often severely altered each vessel form to create sculptural forms. He produces containers for Ikebana vessels (a form of flower arranging), lamp bases and tile wall murals. He uses his own glaze formulations and repeatedly fires each object until he achieves the coloration he seeks, sometimes firing 4 or 5 times. De Soule has been using the raku process since 1982.
