Steve Hemingway
Minnesota Ceramic Artist Active since 1992
I was born in the factory town of Flint, Michigan. The first art pieces I remember creating were drawings. They were preliterate and based on the Sunday funnies my older siblings were reading. One drawing in particular had something to do with a chick from my Easter basket and a volcano. It was drawn like a small story board. The epiphany was that I could create a story with images. That continues to this day. In my formal training to teach art to children I heard the term, “joy of process.” I create visually however I would imagine this feeling holds for other artists (such as musicians). Another term, “the sensuous immediacy,” means there is an immediate positive emotional response to creating. Wet clay allows for this sensuous immediacy. It immerses you in the present. I find this a wellspring for creative thought and process. The final process of making permanent sculpture with fire allows an artist to become part of the many thousands of hands that hold testament to our humanity and it’s endless love affair with this material.
