Steve Roper has been involved in education and art in Canberra since 1978. He has a background in painting, architecture, and since 2008, ceramics. His practice currently revolves around creating ceramic sculptures, drawing influence from cartoons, African and Pacific Islander art, graffiti and street art.
His work is hand built, mostly using the coil and pinch techniques that are commonly used by potters. Mostly he makes work for his own enjoyment, but is always happy to see his works go to a loving home.
His sculptures have received awards from the Australian Ceramics Association, and at the Royal Canberra Show.
