Jordan Gower was an Associate in the JamFactory Ceramics Studio from 2016-17. While in the program he assisted on several restaurant tableware commissions including work for Fino Seppeltsfield and Jacob’s Creek Winery in the Barossa. In 2017 he was awarded JamFactory’s Drink Dine Design emerging designer award and has since made a successful livelihood from designing and producing handmade tableware for a variety of prominent South Australian restaurants including Penfolds Magill Estate Restaurant, Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant, The Pot by Emma McCaskill, Woodstock Winery and Nido Bar & Pasta.
Gower creates handmade tableware and objects that reference the rich history of wheel-thrown studio pottery. He produces his work under the studio moniker Aburi Ceramics – a reference to Japanese food and culture that has long inspired him and a clever nod to the parallels between the culinary process of flame-searing to create something new and exciting and the transformative alchemy of firing naturally occurring clay and glaze materials in a kiln.
