Gordon Pottery

Gordon Pottery Gordon Pottery specializes in handmade, wheel-thrown ceramic art, both functional and decorative.
As the owner of Gordon Pottery, I have been creating ceramic forms and glazes for the past 20 years. Prior to this, I was a pottery collector and "appreciator" for many years. A 25-year career as teacher and school administrator provided sufficient stress to encourage me to take my first pottery class and, since that time, I have developed a deep connection with this medium. Since retirement a few years ago, it has been my great good fortune to work daily with this craft and see it evolve into a cohesive approach that includes both functional and decorative work. The approach I use reflects my attraction to surface treatments that are unique and unpredictable. Horsehair pottery certainly embodies these qualities. The forms I use are usually classical or alterations of classical shapes. ~David Gordon, artist/owner
