Stephen Powell was born in Birmingham, Alabama in 1951. He received his Master of Fine Arts from Louisiana State University in 1983. He has taught in several schools in the U.S. and Australia and currently holds an Assistant Professorship at Centre College in Danville, Kentucky, where he teaches Glass, Ceramics and Sculpture.

Stephen is best known for his very large scale, dramatic multi-colored vessels. His pieces are so large that they take a team of several glass artists to execute. In contrast to the large scale and bold, organic forms, is the delicate patterning of the colors which he achieves by laying out an intricate pattern of glass beads and rolling them onto the surface of the hot vessel.

Stephen is a highly respected young artist whose work is in many private and public collections, including The Auckland Museum, the Birmingham Museum of Art, The Mobile Museum of Fine Art and the Huntsville Museum of Art.
