About the Artist
Born in Yuma, Arizona, in 1957, John Gregg was raised in Phoenix and attended mountaineering school in Telluride, Colorado, in 1973 and 1975. He has traveled across the Western United States, including hiking Zion Canyon and Utah's Canyon Country, to capture amazing Southwest photographs. He also took pottery classes at Arcadia High School, but his major influence was his mother, Corrine Mathiesen Gregg, who was a prolific artist. After her passing, John returned to pottery in her memory and as a way of coping with her loss. He now focuses on honing his design skills and experimenting with alternative firing methods at his home studio and Pottery West in Las Vegas.
