Steven Young Lee: Steven Young Lee creates contemporary ceramic pieces that appropriate elements of form, decoration, color, imagery and material from various cultures and historical periods. This collage of forms and motifs draws from various origins, including Chinese, Korean, French, Dutch, English and Minoan traditions. His work reflects a fascination with historical ceramic objects as both a representation of individual cultures and a hybridization of outside influences.

A native of Chicago, IL, Steve received his MFA in ceramics from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University in 2004. He has lectured and taught extensively in North America and Asia. In 2016 Steve was one of four artists to participate in the Renwick Invitational at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. He has served as the Resident Artist Director of the Archie Bray Foundation since 2007. He and his wife, Lisa, live in Helena with their two children, Gavin and Florence. (
