Gary Steinborn
and Venice Clay


Gary Steinborn has been a Venice potter for a long, long time. At the Venice Clay website, his statement says:

I had my first studio over thirty years ago on the front porch of my family's California bungalow home. Working there on a homemade potter's wheel and sculpting clay by hand when I was a teenager started the journey that led me to a Masters Degree in Art from UCLA. Growing up in Los Angeles I was exposed multi cultural influences. In my work I try to synthesize influences ranging from the heritage of the American crafts movement to funk and pop art. All the pieces I offer at Venice Clay are my original designs. The goal is to produce ceramics that is immaculately crafted, intelligent and humorous - suitable for a neo-classical palace or personal Zen retreat.
