Steve Buck

Steve Buck’s practice is situated at the boundary of craft and art. Few living artists can mirror the astonishing and varied technical skills that he brings to ceramic sculpture. His work encompasses and transcends the ancient form of the vessel and takes us into the parallel worlds of his sculptural pre-occupations.
