Gordon Pembridge was born in Kenya and part of his life is his artwork,
particularly his natural history illustrations and fine art, this combined with his love of woodworking has also developed into woodturning. Gordon started woodturning in 2004 at the South Auckland Woodturners Guild. Gordon has developed a series of thin turned pieces with a pierced fern as a signature piece. In these pieces Gordon loves exploring the boundaries of woodturning on the lathe and then hand carving of intricate designs into the timber. The designs in Gordon’s turned pieces are inspired from his love of New Zealand natural history.
Gordon now works for himself and is involved in graphic design, 3D design, fine art, illustration, photography, digital imaging, and woodturning.
