Born & raised in Kailua, Hawaii, Jordan began his glass career in Seattle at the age of 25. He was fortunate enough to work alongside some truly talented glass artists there from 2005 to 2013.
He returned to Maui in 2013 and is an integral member of the Makai Glass team. In Jordan's personal works, he strives to create one-of-a-kind pieces that pull the viewer into his world of wonderment and fascination with the many facets of glass. Influenced by the Venetian process and design, Jorden creates vessel forms, but also explores the optical illusions that solid glass provides.
Astronomy and physics are deep sources of inspiration for Jordan and he uses matter, motion, and energy to generate a physical object aimed to give us a deeper understanding of the Universe and our life within it.
