Reception: Friday, August 2, 5–7 p.m.
After growing up in Bigfork and then spending the next 16 years in St. Paul, Jason Trebs is now settling into his new home and studio on the North Shore of Lake Superior.
”I'm certain my draw to the Lake is rooted in my childhood spent growing up in the Bigfork area. Returning to the woods in adulthood is a complete rediscovery of the many things I took for granted as a kid.
A bit of an outlier, I have always gravitated toward a do-it-yourself ethic and have found it rewarding to have built a career out of making things. Clay is my favorite channel. I love it more now than when I started.
I try to express an idea through straightforward simple monolithic shapes and mono glazing. I want the making of each pot to take on a new direction while still relating too the ones that were made before and after it. It is my aim to make quiet forms that have a strong presence.”
