Inspired by a dinnerware pattern originally developed for a French restaurant, this piece captures colors of the earth, bringing them to life in a layered, textural design featuring scattered piercings, sgraffito (scratched) detail, and a multi-layered glaze finish. Made for hanging or tabletop display.
Gordon finds inspiration in his love of nature and architecture then adds his own abstract interpretation, producing painterly expressions in contemporary, wheel-thrown dinnerware, lighting pieces, and sculptural work. In addition, he creates exquisite sinks and residential pieces, now a major focus of his work. By making his own clay and glazes, Gordon invents a language all his own, conveying color and movement in every design. He now owns a clay studio, Two Rivers Studio, in Western North Carolina just 10 miles from the Cherokee Indian Reservation.
