Australia’s most significant output pottery, Robert Gordon, has teamed up with artist David Bromley on a new array of stoneware ceramic pieces. Robert Gordon x Bromley&Co pays homage to the historical past of both the Melbourne-based pottery, and the celebrated artist, bringing collectively two innovative Australian greats!
This is not the first time the Gordon family members have worked with the renowned Australian artist. ‘Hanging in the pottery is a gorgeous painting David did of our father and grandfather surrounded by pots, painted all around five yrs ago’, states Sam Gordon, 1 of the 4 Gordons in the family business enterprise. The pottery has produced objects and dinnerware for David and Yuge in excess of the a long time, and have often toyed with the notion of a greater project – this collaboration was a very long time coming!
David, Yuge and Michael Kalnins (Myer’s tabletop customer, who is also a potter and received guiding this collaboration from the get-go) have been engaged in just about every move of the process of bringing this selection to lifestyle. Prototypes of each and every condition had been chosen from the Robert Gordon pottery in Pakenham, and following this, the style team then took to the approach of wrapping Bromley’s artwork onto each and every piece.
For the Gordon loved ones, this collaboration signifies a authentic milestone. Doing the job on this bespoke selection, with the help of a big division shop, is a massive offer. ‘I really like the nostalgia of a grand department retailer the place stage of sale, shows and provider are truly effectively regarded and thoughtful’, Sam suggests.
