On October 1, 2011 Grounds For Sculpture inaugurated the new 7-acre Meadow with the exhibitionof Steel Roots by Steve Tobin. Steve has worked in many mediums including ceramics, glass, bronze, and steel. These bang pots are explorations of form exploding into chaos. Each one is unique and made by inserting a small explosive into clay. They emerge from their transformative moment “full of emotional, aesthetic, and sensual conviction, and deeply alive.” Steve Tobin graduated from Tulane University in 1979 with a BS in mathematics. From there, he pursued his artistic career with study in glass at Pilchuck Glass School, WA and Penland School of Crafts, NC. Teaching appointments and fellowships in glass followed, and in 1989, he became the first foreigner invited to build his own studio in Murano, Italy. In 1994, Tobin built his first bronze foundry, and began to cast bronze. Tobin’s work has been exhibited at numerous museums and outdoor venuesincluding: The American Museum of Natural History, New York City; Lincoln Park, Chicago, Illinois; Laumeier Sculpture Park, St. Louis, Missouri; and Sculpturesite Gallery, San Francisco, California. The artist currently works and resides in Bucks County, PA.
