Steven Godfrey is a potter and a Professor of Ceramics at the University of Alaska Anchorage. His current work is less about being tailored for a specific utilitarian function but rather to illustrate a collection of his interests, combined during the making process and meant to speak beyond functionality and tell a story through the symbolism of form and color. The forms he makes emulate the elegance of French automobile bodies made during the 1930s and 40s: Delage, Delahaye, Talbot-Lago, Bugatti, Avions Voison, etc.
Other aspects of his work subtly or directly depict his interest in old New England tobacco barns, Native Alaskan ivory bird carvings, children’s book illustrations, Danish furniture, magpies, architecture.” He lives in Anchorage.
Work is available to purchase in our gallery and online.
