Eileen Gordon – Up Close & Personal

Eileen Gordon – Artist Biography

Born in Norway to Scottish parents who are both skilled glass artists and engravers, Eileen completed her training in England, then emigrated to Australia in 1980. After many years developing her skills and working in glass studios around Australia and overseas, Eileen Gordon established the Gordon Studio with her partner Grant Donaldson in 1990 and has gone on to become one of Australia’s foremost glass blowers. Eileen’s elegant vessels are a radiant record of the colour and light she finds in the Australian landscape. My passion for colour and form as a fused glass artist is greatly inspired by the environment of the Mornington Peninsula
– the surrounding ocean, its sunrises and fabulous sunsets. ”
