About your tutor

Jordie is a potter in her last year of the Otago diploma in ceramics. Wheel throwing and wild clay foraging are what attracts her most, although she is interested in all aspects of ceramics. She first fell in love with clay in 2007 in a night class in Blenheim and has been potting on and off until taking pottery more full time in 2019. Previously being an environmental educator, Jordie loves sharing her knowledge with others and hopes to continue her clay exploration for many years to come.
