In 1979, Robert 'Andy' Gordon started a small pottery studio in Gembrook, about an hour's drive from Melbourne. He carefully crafted pots in the studio and each week, would drive to the St Kilda market to sell his wares. More than 30 years later, this business is still owned and run by Robert, his wife Barbara and their four adult children. Now based in Pakenham, they still handcraft a beautiful range of ceramics, called "Australian Made", and also import a range of quality items from around the world. The Robert Gordon range brings a little bit of whimsy and old-fashioned charm to a world of increasingly minimalist homewares.
The Australian Made range is all designed and developed on site in Pakenham and every piece is finished by hand. Made from high-fired stoneware, the range is oven, microwave and dishwasher safe, and is designed to give you a lifetime of enjoyment.
