Jordan Roller Pottery

Jordan Roller holding a piece of his pottery, July 2014.

Jordan Roller

Jordan Roller is certainly one of the young potters to watch. He learned to make pottery from his grandmother, Toni Roller, and his father, Jeff Roller. He is also a great-grandson of noted Santa Clara Pottery Matriarch, Margaret Tafoya. When Jordan returned from college, he began making pottery with his Father, Brother and Grandmother full time.  His family all recognized his unique ability as a potter, and while he has been making pottery since he was a child, it is his recent work which has risen to a new level of sophistication in form, polish, carving and firing techniques.  His designs combine a contemporary versions of traditional Pueblo designs, with bold polished and mat decorations around the pot. His distinctive carving techniques combine wide spaces, and thinly carved lines provide a unique strength in each creation.

Roller, Jordan – Jar with Carved Lightning and Buffalo Designs

Jordan Roller is innovative in his use of thin carved designs on his pottery.  This jar combines a unique color combination along with the complex carving. The jar is fully carved with incredibly detailed designs.  There is a stylized buffalo skull, lightning, clouds, and mountains.  Take a moment to look closely at the designs and the intricate carving.  There is such small space between some of the carved areas that Jordan says he uses just a folded piece of sandpaper to “carve” the lines.  Not only is the jar very intricately carved, but also highly polished and even the inside of the neck is polished!  The jar was traditionally fired a dark brown coloration. It is a beautiful even tonality to the surface.  It’s exciting to see a piece with such complexity and flow of design.  It is signed on the bottom.

Roller, Jordan – Tall Jar with Mountain and Cloud Patterns

Jordan Roller is innovative in his use of thin carved designs on his pottery.  This jar combines a unique color combination along with the complex carving. The jar was originally polished tan and red along with areas which were matte.  Jordan then fired it brown, creating the distinctive coloration. The polished and matte areas took on two different colorations and they contrast with the matte areas. The design around the top of the jar is a cloud pattern.  Around the center is an alternating mountain and rain design. The tightly carved lines of the central section contrast with the larger, open section of the clouds around the neck.  This sophisticated technique is balanced with great shapes, creative designs and beautifully stone polished surfaces.  Jordan is certainly a  young potter to watch!
