Jordan Scott is a potter from London Ontario. His work focuses on the exploration of objects of containment and how they are an insight into understanding culture. His interest of historical Craft comes from his experiences in Medieval Re-enactments while participating in the Society of Creative Anachronism which taught him to research and pay attention to the importance of craft as an insight into our past and future.
He focuses his research on understanding the subtleties in form, surface and the relevance of hand made objects to routine. His work is fired in a wood kiln and a soda kiln, which allows him to explore the serendipitous nature of kiln firing technologies. He scratches marks and patterns into the clay and wet slip almost unconsciously. Combining the mark making and his firing techniques expresses a need for a “rough touch” and aged aesthetic in the material.
