Our first featured ‘Sussex Maker’ in the DLWP Shop is ceramicist Jessica Jordan
With the return of The Sussex Guild Contemporary Craft Show in the last weekend of September we wanted to give you a glimpse of what to expect from one of its exhibitors.
Jessica’s ceramics are inspired by the natural corrosion of surfaces, aerial views of landscapes, the contrast of rough and smooth line. Jessica looks at the pattern and texture that are found on stones and other objects like wood, glass and metal that have been weathered and broken down from natural erosion such as water, frost and heat. Her work takes the form of vessels, sculptures, wall pieces and jewellery and look at different ways of containing space. Her forms are hand-built using stoneware or porcelain body clay. Once fired, the pieces are washed over with oxides to highlight textures made on the surface of the ceramics pieces then fired up to 1260’c.
Jessica’s work is now available for purchase in the DLWP shop.
The Sussex Guild Contemporary Craft Show returns on Saturday 30 September and Sunday 1 October.
