Steve Jensen, of Norwegian descent, is primarily known for his boat and sculptures in wood and uses woodworking tools passed down through generations of boat builders. Recently he has taken molds of the wooden boats and cast them in crystal and bronze that feel like they’ve been recently discovered on the bottom of the ocean. Jensen will also exhibit his richly colored paintings of boats that appear to be levitating above the water.
