Jason Trebs has been making pottery full time since 2004. Prior to that he completed two years of work and study with potter Robert Briscoe in Harris, MN. It was not a traditional apprenticeship, Jason reflects, "I didn't work on any of Bob's pots and he didn't pay me with money. I had a space to work and in return I helped Bob with studio tasks. The benefits far outweighed the responsibilities."
Originally from Bigfork, MN, Jason is a graduate of Bemidji State University. He maintains a studio in St. Paul's South Como neighborhood and regularly participates in art festivals across the country including the Sun Valley Arts and Crafts Festival in Idaho and the annual Minnesota Potters of the Upper St. Croix Valley Tour. Jason's work is represented in collections of the Weisman Art Museum, Anoka Ramsey Community College and in the Margaret Harlow Collection at Bemidji State. He was featured in the documentary film Minnesota Potters: Sharing the Fire and the "Crossroads" episode of the Craft in America series on PBS. Jason strives to "make useful art that can make daily life more interesting and fun."
