Steve Feren

Artist Biography:

Steven Feren was born in 1951 and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. He received his initial training at the Dayton Art Institute and later studied at Alfred University where he worked as a Teaching Assistant, receiving the BFA degree in sculpture in 1979.  He attended Rutgers University as a Teaching Assistant and earned the Master of Fine Arts degree in 1981. He was an assistant at the Mason Gross School of Art in New Brunswick, NJ (1979-80) before taking positions at Douglas College (New Brunswick, NJ) and Morris County College (Dover, NJ) during 1981-82.

In 1982, he began teaching at the University of Wisconsin-Madison inheriting the nation’s infamous studio glass program started by the late Harvey Littleton who inspired many his students, such as Dale Chihuly, Marvin Lipofsky, and other innovative artists working with glass.  During his tenure, Feren’s artistic fortitude extended the use of glass to also be used in combination with other materials.  His artistic direction and teaching has had a great impact on the recent generation of young artists inspired by the open-ended use of glass, light and the many other material options for personal expression.  This potential adds a new dynamic to studio glass.  Feren re
