Jordan Scott is a London Ontario Based potter. His work is an amalgamation of curiosities and sensitive material awareness. Jordan makes work that has strong anthropological connections. He experiments with how things are discovered, catalogued, restored, curated, put on display, observed and put into storage where the process is later repeated from a new perspective. He sees objects as a way of connecting people.
Because of a series of conversations with Harlan House. Jordan decided to make his own clay and glazes from scratch in small studio at the London Clay Art Centre. He has been exploring the not yet popularized temperature range of Cone2. This arrangement encourages thoughtful making and requires clever solutions to new problems he’d yet to anticipate. The move to the lower temperature was a reaction to the realization that his previous higher temperature explorations were an unsustainable way for him to make his work. His recent curiosities are about learning how layering bright colourful materials impact the form and brighten the space around an object.
