Steven McGovney

If there is something to steal, I steal it. Pablo Picasso

Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing. Salvadore Dali


Steven McGovney Design Studio


Trained in Design and Sculpture with an MFA from Otis Art Institute, Steven McGovney has worked in multiple medias, but focused on the sculptural side of ceramics. He has done whimsical ceramic art, and sculpture.


The Avicularity line of bird sculptures is mixed media including clay, steel, acrylic and oil paint.  Birds are intended to bring a smile.  The Ravens, in particular, are such an interesting bird, carried in the myths of many peoples worldwide.  


Flights of Fancy are imaginary birds inspired by the wacky names of birds themselves.


Imaginarium is a figurative line inspired by a workshop given by a New Zealand artist, and combines animals and birds in a dreamlike state of being.


Recently, due to chronic elbow problems from years of heavy studio work, Steven has added  designing jewelry, creating affordable designs in base metals and paper, and also a line of Sterling Silver and semiprecious stones. He was nominated for a NICHE award in 2010 for the silver and stone category. Steven has also trained in lapidary, and cuts most of his own stones for use in his jewelry.


Steven McGovney with Tammy Camarot created a successful line of wildly painted table top items and one of a kind sculpture. McGovney has designed industrial lines for major retailers, incorporating fine design and affordable prices.


McGovney-Camarots work is in the Arthur Goldberg Teapot Collection, and recently included in a Fuller Craft Museum Show.


Michael Douglas, Terence Stamp, James Whitmore, and Bill Clinton have collected Stevens work. He show in many of the top galleries featuring American Crafts in the USA, and participate in many invitational shows throughout the country each year.


Steven has taught ceramics at Yavapai College since 2011
