Jeff Oestreich received his education at Bemidji State University, the University of Minnesota, and at the Bernard Leach Pottery in St. Ives, England. He has exhibited and taught throughout the United States, as well as in New Zealand. Oestreich is well-known for his functional stoneware pots. Wheel-thrown and altered, the minimally glazed work is fired in a soda kiln at his residence and studio near Taylors Falls, Minnesota.

The Leach Pottery attracts potters from all over the world and serves as a meeting place for the exchange of skills and ideas.
