"Jeff Oestreich" Profile

"My early pottery training at the Leach Pottery in England in the late 1960's was heavily influenced by Japanese pottery. Although there are still the underpinnings of the pottery of Japan, China, and Korea in my work, that being simplicity and directness in approach, I am currently doing salt glazing, which has its origins in Germany. I have one foot in Japan, one in Germany, an interest in Art Deco architecture.

All things considered, my approach is American, borrowing from as many sources that speak to me."

- Jeff Oestreich -

Jeff Oestreich is a full-time studio potter, receiving his Bachelor of Arts degree from Bemidji State University and the University of Minnesota. He followed his formal educational with an apprenticeship at the Leach Pottery in St. Ives, England from 1969-1971. Throughout the 1980's he taught at various universities in America and has since returned to full-time work in his studio near Taylors Falls , Minnesota where he has lived for the past 35 years. He continues to exhibit and teach short-term classes here and abroad.
