Biography: Steve Klein
Steve Klein maintains a studio in La Conner, Washington, where he produces his distinctive kiln-formed and blown work. “My recent work seeks to explore, and have fun with the fragile state of balance and to interpret personal visions that cause me to pause and appreciate what I am experiencing.”
He cites painters Ben Nicholson, Josef Albers, Mondrian, Malevich and Hofmann as well as sculptors Hepworth, Flavin, Chillida, and Judd as key influences.
Klein's work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Glass, Tacoma, Washington; Museum of Art and Design, New York City; the Museo del Vidrio in Spain; Tsinghua University Museum in Beijing; Tissot Museum, Taipei, Taiwan; Museums of Scotland, Edinburgh; Eretz Israel Museum, Tel Aviv; Museum of Northwest Art, Washington; and the California Museum of Art, Oakland.
