Event description

Join us for a casual Wednesday Talk with South Australian ceramicist, Jordan Gower.


Jordan Gower is a South Australian artist working with ceramics since 2016. Originally trained as printmaker, Gower studied as the Adelaide College of the Arts before completing an Honours degree at the University of South Australia, exploring perception and printmaking in the expanded field. After graduation he held a studio at Carclew and worked at SASA Gallery, before returning to AC Arts to attend ceramic wheel throwing classes. After an initial introduction to ceramics, Gower joined JamFactory’s Associate Training Program, under guidance from Damon Moon and David Pedler.

As a JamFactory Associate, Gower was named 2017’s Drink Dine Design Emerging Designer Award for his work with Chef Emma McCaskill. He was also awarded a mentorship with Castlemaine-based artist Phil Elson and a wood firing residency in Tasmania with Ben Richardson of Ridgeline Pottery. Over the course of his career Gower has consistently participated in group exhibitions and attended international residencies in Singapore and Japan and locally at Nexus.

Experienced making tableware, Gower has developed a reputation as a high-quality production studio, under the moniker Aburi. His work can be found extensively across top South Australian restaurants and wineries, including Magill Estate Restaurant, Restaurant Botanic, Hardy’s Verandah Restaurant and Muni, as well as various private collections.
