ABURI ceramic brand
Aburi is the emerging design studio and online store of JamFactory ceramic artist Jordan Gower. Influenced by East Asian culinary culture, Aburi operates primarily as a small batch production studio.
So what’s the name all about?
Well, Aburi is a Japanese food preparation technique in which fish, most commonly, is scorched with flames. This process renders the fish slightly charred, bringing out an intense flavour, whilst the underside remains raw and complimentary. Using this process to think about pottery, it seems fitting that each piece of clay should carry similar qualities after having been kiln fired. Aburi should have a dynamic, glazed top surface and raw, exposed clay beneath.
