Artist Bio
Steve Smith has always been an artist, it just took him about 50 years to realize it!  Several bumps in the road, twists and turns of fate…it was time to make a living using his creative talents.  A friend moved, sold us her kiln and he began experimenting, since there were always a few wine bottles around, he began melting those.  With Steve’s love of nature and a hope to leave this world a better place for those that come after us, re-configuring bottles otherwise bound for a landfill seemed a good path to follow…so began Art From Empties…Over the years he has developed techniques to cut, melt, shape, drill, color and polish the recycled glass to create unique pieces ranging from wearables to wall pieces.
