Probably Australia's most successful glass family
« on: March 29, 2011, 07:05:07 AM »
The following site:-   http://www.gordonstudio.com.au/

Is run by Eileen Gordon and her partner Grant Donaldson.  They live about 50Kms from the centre of Melbourne.  She creates hot glass pieces, he ceates BIG hot glass pieces and I already have a Pwt from the son - Hamish.

The reason I bring them forward is the last two links of the home page.

(1)   Alisdair & Rish Gordon - Dad & Mum do the most exquisite cameo and engraved work.  Usually of animals or birds.  Yes Alisdair is the Scottish one but he has been ours for over 30 years now - and he shows no signs of going back

(2)   Kevin Gordon - brother - also does most exquisite engraving and etching work but his range is very eclectic.

I was lucky enough to pick up an early Rish & Eileen work from 1991 at auction (see photos) - shows how far both have come in twenty years.
