Art informs life; Life informs art and Creativity.
Stephen Potter has been a metal sculptor in the Dallas, TX area for the past 20 years, glass sculptor for 15 years, ceramic student and sculptor for 4 years, and psychotherapist for over 50 years. He was Treasurer and Board member of Texas Sculpture Association from 2008-2015, Treasurer and Board member of Texas Jewish Arts Association. He has studied metal sculpture with Art Shirer, Ian Eisenmann, and Dan Sellers, clay sculpture with Debbie Ballard, and glass sculpture with Nan Phillips. In his professional life as a clinical social worker and psychotherapist, he has also worked as an Instructor, Dept of Pediatrics, UT Health Science Center of Dallas, Richland College, and Adjunct Professor for UTA and UT Austin Schools of Social Work.
Stephen’s art has been influenced by Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Joel Shapiro, and David Smith. His art reflects an ongoing fascination with, and optimism about, the people around him, and his background in clinical social work and psychotherapy informs his work. The writings of Carl Jung, Carl Rogers, and Fritz Perls about dreamwork and symbols have been especially influential.
