A brief history of the Archie Bray Foundations for the Ceramic Arts in Helena, Montana. Steven Young Lee has been the resident artist director of the Archie Bray Foundation for the Ceramic Arts in Helena, Montana since 2006. In 2004-05, he lectured and taught at numerous universities throughout China as part of a one-year cultural and educational exchange in Jingdezhen, Shanghai, and Beijing. In 2005-06 he was a visiting professor at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design in Vancouver, B.C. In March 2013 he participated on a panel, “Americans in the Porcelain City,” at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. In 2013, he was one of several international artists invited to participate in “New Blue and White,” an exhibition at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston that featured contemporary artists working in the blue-and-white tradition of ceramic production. In the Fall of 2016, his work was featured as part of the Renwick Invitational at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, D.C. Steve received his BFA and MFA in Ceramics from Alfred University. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
