  • About the Artist
  • Curriculum Vitae

Born in Norway to Scottish parents who are both skilled glass engravers, Eileen completed her training in England at the Brierley Hill Glass Center (West Midlands), 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 glassblowers. Eileen’s elegant vessels are a radiant record of the colour and light she finds in the Australian landscape.
