3 generations of Potters
We only make 50 of each vessel, once it's sold - it's sold. Each piece is unique, and one-of-a-kind. Available exclusively at robertgordonaustralia.com
We use a stoneware clay body that is twice fired for added strength.We bisque fire at 1000c and gloss fire at 1280c,resulting in fully vitrified pieces that will not absorb any moisture.
Each piece in our 'Studio Door' collections has been glazed by hand in our workshop, by Kate and Bel. The glazing process of each piece can take some time, with each pattern or design carefully brushed by hand. Kate Gordon is Robert Gordon’s Creative Director. Having grown up in the business, Kate has over 30 years experience glazing and designing pottery. One of her earliest memories is threading ceramic beads on hanging planters with her Grandma June Dyson - sitting on the wooden steps of June’s studio, while they gossiped about the family and talked about nature.
Bel is one of our very talented glazers. Not only has she been with us for many years, but her mother-in-law Sally, and her daughter Hollie, are part of the Robert Gordon family too. Three generations have worked with the pottery, how about that?
