Steven Young Lee is the Resident Artist Director of the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, Montana. A Chicago native, he received his MFA in Ceramics from the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. He has lectured and taught at numerous universities globally. His work has been exhibited in China, Canada and throughout the United States, and is held in private collections in New York, Pennsylvania, Illinois and Montana. Lee maintains an active studio practice rooted in both functional and sculptural ceramics. His current work examines cultural references and how individuals draw realities based on experiences and environment.  Through his sculpture and vessels, he challenges preconceptions of style, form, symbolism, superstitions and identity.
