Jason Trebs and Peter Jadoonath 5th Annual Pottery Sale
Where: Back Alley Gallery, Lowertown St. Paul
Jason and Peter are among our favorite potters. We've been buying their pots for years. We returned from their 5th Annual Pottery Sale with a pitcher by each artist, a vase by Peter, and a bowl by Jason. All will get a lot of use.
Photos from the sale:
Why buy handmade pottery:
Trebs: “Because you can use it.”
Jadoonath: “It’s an approachable art form, and affordable.”
On pottery and relationship:
Trebs: “When something I make becomes part of someone’s personal space, that’s an intimate relationship.”
Jadoonath: “The idea of someone buying a cup I made, and touching it to their lips—that’s an intimate thing. You don’t buy a painting and kiss it.”
