The primary thing Steve Miller’s wood turned vessels are meant to hold is your attention. Steve designs his creations to celebrate the grain, coloring and “flaws” of his beginning piece of wood. He develops his pieces so they provoke a feeling of warmth, and a desire to touch. To this end, he often embellishes his pieces with intricate carving which is accentuated with the application of paints and stains. His distinctive creations evoke natural forms and classical shapes, allowing the viewer to find new avenues of beauty each time they encounter a Steve Miller piece.
