Hey everyone! I'm Jordan Blankenship, the maker behind JordanBCeramics. Picture me with clay in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other, trying to find the perfect balance amidst hectic schedules and kiln firings.
Based out of Estero, Florida, I make handcrafted functional pottery for your home.
Quality is my top priority, and that's why I ensure that every piece I create is 100% handmade with utmost care and attention to detail. From mugs that embrace your morning brew to beautifully crafted bowls that elevate your dining experience, my philosophy remains simple yet profound: handmade art that brings joy to your everyday life.
"I want to celebrate the beauty of simplicity where objects can be appreciated when made thoughtfully and honestly…." -Jordan Blankenship
Jordan Blankenship is a functional ceramic designer; she explores developing ceramic sets that embrace practical thinking while playing with systems and outcomes that challenge expected limitations. Blankenship holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Florida Gulf Coast University and her Master of Fine Arts degree in ceramics at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth. Today, Jordan’s collections can be found through partnerships with retailers across the United States. Jordan works from her studio in Estero, Florida where she continues to hone her craft.
During her time at FGCU she was awarded the Seidler Grant for research, where she converted a decommissioned electric kiln to gas to achieve atmospheric surfaces using solutions for soda. That research lead to a presentation at the annual NCECA conference. Jordan also held the position as the Art Director at a local studio, Clay More Ceramics, in Naples and instructed a number of classes and workshops.
