Ceramic artist and professor Steve Dixon is also a satirist, writer, lecturer and curator. He is known mainly for his use of dark narrative and for using “illustrated ceramics pots as an unlikely platform for social commentary and political discontent.” From Renaissance paintings and British politics to pop culture, Dixon draws on a variety of sources to “challenge the status quo and inspire new ways of thinking.” Dixon tends to create busy, complex ceramics pieces, each with an intriguing message.

“I am interested in the history of clay…the unique way that ceramic relics and fragments communicate across the centuries, telling tales of great personalities and events, as well as the mundane rituals of daily life.”  Steve Dixon

Steve’s work work features in numerous public and private collections, including the Museum of Arts & Design, New York; the Victoria and Albert Museum; the British Council; the Crafts Council; the Royal Museum of Scotland and the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
