Known primarily for his textured and carved hollow vessels and small necked bottles, John Jordan has been featured in nearly every major turning exhibition the past five years, including International Lathe Turned Objects - Challenge V, and Redefining the Lathe-Turned Object.
He teaches woodturning throughout the U.S. and the U.K. In 1994, his work was shown in Munich, Germany and at Arizona State University in Tempe, Arizona. The American Craft Museum in New York City, the Fine Arts Museum of the South in Mobile, Alabama, and the Bank of Nashville all have Jordan's work in their collections.
He is former President of the Cumberland Valley Chapter of the Tennessee Association of Craft Artists, and former Vice-President and a founding member of the Tennessee Association of Woodturners.
