BEHIND THE WHEEL
Meet The Potter
Started up by Jordy McNamee in the Spring of 2016. McNamee MADE focuses on handmade functional pottery that can be used in everyday life.
Jordy was born and raised in Kirkwood, Missouri, just outside St. Louis. Jordy has always enjoyed being outdoors and his yearly family trips to the Fraser Valley helped him solidify his idea to pursue college in the great state of Colorado. Jordy attended School at the University of Northern Colorado where he earned his bachelors degree in Elementary Education with a minor in Art & Design. After graduation in 2014 Jordy made the decision to move and call the Fraser Valley home.
In the Spring of 2016 a studio space became available next to a coffee shop in downtown Winter Park. He worked here in the heart of Winter Park for just over a year. With that building getting torn down and developed, the studio moved down the road to The Fraser Shopping Center in Fraser. A few other local artists/potters joined Jordy here at Sunnyside Pottery.
