Bradford  Jordan profile picture

I am a ceramic artist specializing in raku firing. I was introduced to ceramics in high school and then took it up again many years ago at the Fallbrook School of the Arts. Now I work in my studio in Fallbrook, primarily with Raku firing, which is especially interesting to me because of the variability of the finished work. All my pieces are wheel-thrown, though I do alter the forms after throwing. Most of my pieces are vases and jars. I use horsehair, sodium silicate, aluminum foil, newspaper, leaves, feathers, slip, and other tools for my firings.
