I'm inspired by ancient ritual vessels, artifacts and architectural elements from many cultures. History and tradition are relevant to my work and give me a foundation on which to build and move forward. Central to my work is the constant exploration and development of form along with a balancing of contrasting surfaces to create work that is modern but at the same time acknowledges historical references.

I am fascinated by the versatility of clay and it's ability to survive the centuries by its metamorphosis by fire.

Steve Vachon earned a BFA at Indiana-Purdue University at Fort Wayne. He studied ceramics with Clyde Burt and Nancy McCroskey. He is an artist in residence teaching wheel throwing at Wiesser Park Magnet School in Fort Wayne. Steve specializes in raku but also works with other ceramic firing techniques and finishes. He has exhibited at many juried art fairs in Indiana and other states.
