Steven Showalter is a Potter and High School Art Teacher located in Eagan, Minnesota. He creates functional pottery that pairs modern design with traditional form and exhibits a strong dedication to quality craftsmanship.
My work is inspired by my wood-firing experiences. I’m captivated by the rich and unpredictable surfaces of wood-firing and achieve similar qualities in my electric kiln by relying on glaze choices and application methods. I apply my glazes by spraying on thin layers of glaze that create a rich color palette of runny glazes that mimic my natural surroundings. I also uses texture as a way to create unique patterns within my work.
All of my work is food, microwave, dishwasher and oven safe.
We are a small family business! Steven makes all the work and his loving family helps out whenever possible!
