Established in 1990 by Eileen Gordon and Grant Donaldson, Gordon Studio Glassblowers is a hot glass studio and gallery based in Red Hill.
Representing the Gordon Family, the Gallery encompasses art glass ranging from exquisite traditional cameo and contemporary carved and engraved glass, to colourful hand-blown vases, bowls, platters, bottles and animals. Magnificent indoor and outdoor art glass sculptures and commissioned work are also displayed.
From the Gallery, there is a viewing mezzanine where you can watch the glassblowers when working. This ancient form of art is created from molten glass made from sand in the furnace, heated up to 1300 degrees Celsius, making it one of the most expensive forms of art to produce and the hardest to learn.
Eileen’s father, Alasdair, specialises in Cameo work while her mother, Rish, engraves in layers of colours, depicts her love for Australian and African wildlife. Eileen’s brother Kevin Gordon has developed a unique contemporary style of engraving and carving and has been voted 17th in the world’s best top 30 Glass Artists. Eileen and Grant's sons Hamish and Calum are now part of Gordon Studios, developing their own unique styles of glass art.
