Capturing the Beauty of Nature in Glass


Since 1982 Gordon has been working as a full-time studio glass artist, creating fine, crystal lampworked paperweights and sculptures. Primarily using realism to execute his choice of subject, which can range from a floral motif to a desert scene or aquatic environment, it is his expertise in articulating these micro-realms that has won him distinction and prominence in the genre.

Today, Gordon is one of the few acknowledged masters of the art of paperweight making in the world. His work receives worldwide attention for its technical mastery and design.

Gordon's crystal paperweights are included in numerous public and private collections including those exhibited at the Royal Ontario Museum, the Christchurch Museum in New Zealand, the Bergstrom Mahler Museum, the Courier Museum, the Museum of American Glass, and the Corning Museum of Glass.

Please enjoy looking at his work displayed here. Thank you very much for visiting.
