Gordon is a resident of Upper Tantallon, Nova Scotia and has been working with wood for over 20 years. He was introduced to woodturning 8 years ago and it has become a true passion. Over the past 4 years he has concentrated on segmented woodturning. Using both local and exotic lumber he has produced award-winning bowls, urns and other shaped forms that highlight the different colors of the woods used in each piece.
