Steve Hansen grew up in the Midwest among the barns and fields, and decaying cars, where his ancestors were farmers, blacksmiths and mechanics. These work-with-the-hands roots influenced his artistry in ceramics and sculpture, where he likes to give nod to his origins witha nuance of humor. A professor of art, Steve has exhibited in galleries across the country and has works featured in several permanent collections. He concentrates his efforts these days on creating work in the tradition of tro mpe l’oeil ceramics, with an emphasis on social commentary and Americana.
