John Jordan used the large, sweeping grain of honey locust wood to inspire Vase. The spherical shape complements the circle of lightly colored wood and bands of darker tones. Jordan has applied tightly turned rings of texture around the piece to emphasize its rounded form.
“There is a great deal of emotion involved in making these pieces: anticipation, excitement, and sometimes frustration and disappointment. When the work goes well, my hand and eye seem to be guided by feelings rather than thoughts.” John Jordan, American Craft, 1990
