Steve Davis was born in 1951 in Columbus, Ohio and earned a B.S. degree from The Ohio State University in 1974. He has made objects most of his life and by this has explored numerous media. In 1993, he founded his own studio, Sunheart Metalworks. For many years now, his focus has been in metals where he employs a wide variety of traditional and contemporary techniques. This work involves passion, intellect, and full-force physical input. He creates pieces from the sublime to the humorous—creatively solving problems and logistical nightmares.
Davis has been a member of the Artist Blacksmith Association of North America since its early days, as well as belonging to the Alabama Forge Council and the American Craft Council.
