Steven Ciezki was born in Calumet City, Illinois. As a kid, he was fascinated with the art of drawing. This skill grew and developed further throughout his high school art classes. During his college career at Illinois State University, he was able to experience the art of glass blowing. This new and exciting media has changed his vision of the basic two-dimensional world. Steven received his BFA in glass from Illinois State University and has plans to travel the world and continue to learn from the artists who have inspired his fascination with glass. Both the delicacy of cup making and vessel orientated work has had a major influence on him. His work has been constantly developing with ideas of keeping the viewer’s perceptual experience in mind.
