Tea Time with Potter Jeff Oestreich: Artist Talk & Trunk Show
Jeff Oestreich was trained in the austere simplicity of traditional Asian pottery while serving as an apprentice to Bernard Leach in England in the 1960s–70s. He will talk about his time at Leach Pottery in St. Ives and how its legacy continues to influence and resonate with contemporary artists. He will discuss and show his own work and the work of three potters who also apprenticed with Leach: Kat Wheeler, John Beddings, Roelof Ulys.
In the British tradition, after the talk, tea and scones will be served while attendees can meet the artist.
