My favorite local potter is Greg Jahn. He lives right here in Billings and I have been collecting his work for about 10 years. I started out going to his open studios in December with the idea I was buying Christmas gifts. However, when it came down to it - I found I really could not part with them once I got them home. At that point, I became a collector. I continue to attend his open studio events and I always treat myself to some pottery. Usually, I purchase some mugs because I drink tea every morning and it means a lot to me to have a wonderful mug to drink from each day. I now have 28 mugs in my collection and I love using each one of them.
I also collect his vases and bowls - oh - and teapots!
Merry Christmas to me! A gift I can enjoy for many years to come.
