Magnificent Pottery at the CCC
Salem Courthouse Community Center has come to life with the gorgeous and unique creations of master potter, Jordan Becker. Jordan, who serves as the manager of the CCC pottery program, is perfecting the use of the anagama kiln at Salem Art Works. The kiln is wood-fired and reaches unbelievably high temperatures, to extract minerals from the clay that result in dramatic colors and finishes, eliminating the need for glazes. Earth tones, a copper sheen and rich red tones are characteristic of Jordan’s work. The exhibit will remain until September 27. The CCC is handicap accessible, and the public is invited to enjoy the exhibit. The CCC is open Monday through Friday, from 9 to 5.
