Curt Stevens mother was an artist, so he has been exposed to art his whole life and he became serious about art himself in high school. He took private lessons in ceramics when his high school art teacher told his mother he was a “natural” with clay. Curt moved to Hawaii in 1990, living on Oahu at first and moving to Maui later on.
His process involves hand building slabs as well as wheel throwing and his glazing is a continuing process of experimentation, resulting in unique color and design. Many of his pieces are porcelain and employ the Italian art of sgraffito where he applies layers of color (underglazes or colored slips) to leather hard pottery and then scratches off parts of the layer(s) to create contrasting images and patterns.
Curt’s work is functional as well as decorative and some are one of a kind collector pieces. He has many beautiful designs and colors to choose from or you can work with Curt on your own special design.
