Glenda Jordan

Biography to Display: 


Degree, Speech Therapy, Texas Women's University, Denton, Texas


Glenda Jordan was first introduced to working with clay while studying for an undergraduate degree in speech therapy at Texas Women's University. She produces functional porcelain and stoneware forms that are either thrown or slab built. Jordan's work is designed and made in her studio where she hand throws and builds, glazes and fires her work. Jordan developed a special glaze method using a process similar to batik which permits matte and glossy glaze colors to appear side by side. She says, "My work is a continual dance of marrying these three elements: form, decoration and color. My botanically inspired pottery combines my love: clay, great food, gardening and nature.”
