Gordon W Robertson was born in Scotland and studied printed textiles and printmaking at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen.
Gordon’s work explores the potential of pattern, materiality and surface, initially developed during his training and career in printmaking and textiles. He now specializes in hand etched metals, particularly pewter and silver, from which he creates tableware, furniture, and jewellery. His influences range from the Renaissance, the Arts and Crafts movement to Punk Rock and beyond.
Gordon has won the Pewter Live competition in 2012 and 2013 and with this success was awarded a QEST (Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust) Scholarship in June 2013, which has helped him form a partnership with Wentworth Pewter producing both bespoke and manufactured pieces with the company.
