Jeff Oestreich

A majority of my work is intended for daily use, although some pieces challenge the notion of function and find their place in a more formal setting. With this in mind, thought is given to weight, balance and access. My passion is in the geometric, playful forms and patterns of Art Deco architecture, softened by the action of the flame and vapor of the soda firing process.


This wheel, built in the 1920's, was used by Bernard Leach and Jeff Oestreich. It is now owned by Minnesota potter Donavan Palmquist. It will be on display at the Oestreich Pottery all three days of the Saint Croix Valley Pottery Tour. Between noon and 1:00 p.m. on Saturday May 13th Jeff, Warren MacKenzie, Clary Illian and Roelof Uys will make pots on it.
