Carver Steve Walters, also a California native, grew up around the family gem business. He spent most of his early years working as a production cutter. In the early 1980s, he first saw the component pieces of the German cutter Dieter Lorenz. He considers Lorenz’s carved onyx pieces to have been a major inspiration.
Walters is a craftsman who sees his work as a component of the jeweler’s process. Where Lehrer is a conceptualist who shapes his pieces, sensitively molding the agate to complete his vision, Walters works without preconceptions and goes where the material takes him. His curves are soft, flowing, feminine and melodic. His best work reminds you of the overlapping currents of a fast-moving stream. His favorite media is opaque to semi-translucent onyx and agate.
HOW TO WEAR IT
Sometimes it’s mostly about the stone, but a lot of what makes any stone look so good is the cut. And some cutters specialize in the unusual.
