Ceramics artist Jessica Jordan has been running the pottery hunt over the past few weeks to give everyone ‘a little bit of fun’.

She said: “Lots of people have been getting involved. It’s been a great community art project set up by myself.

“I have now been working with clay for over 20 years and can honestly say I am still in love with it.”

Ceramics artist Jessica Jordan is raising money for community workshops through Ko-fi, which works like a digital tip jar

Jessica is hoping to raise £3,000 to enable her to offer workshops for adults with dementia, make-and-talk sessions for anyone who needs support with anxiety or mental health, and small group sessions for children and adults with autism. She is asking for donations of £3 via ko-fi.com/jessicajordanceramics

She said: “I am looking to raise some money to do more community work and give some opportunities to others through workshops.”

Jessica lives in Littlehampton and runs her pottery, Jessica Jordan Ceramics, at Field Place in Worthing, including pottery lessons for all ages and levels.

Her trademark is her landscape imagery in her pottery.

She explained: “I use landscape imagery on the surface of the work to capture a moment in time - a memory, a feeling of place, a thought, a hidden emotion.”

Jessica is just about to start a new community project, called Little Doors, where she will be placing small ceramic doors around Littlehampton and at Field Place Manor House to help get the community ‘out and able’ again.
