for this artist and
In 1975, Gordon began carving as a hobby.
As a child, he lived near a wood carver whom the family greatly admired
and who inspired Gordon to try carving himself. Through hard work and
dedication, his hobby soon snowballed into a career. Now Gordon’s
bird sculptures are widely acclaimed and sold across the country, including
at the Smithsonian Institution.
Gordon uses an array of the finest hardwoods. Using a combination of
woods not only gives each bird distinction, but also highlights its features.
Each part of the bird, from head to tail, is accentuated by the various
shades of the hardwoods. Gordon’s bird sculptures are exquisitely
detailed. With their charm and engaging nature, these bird sculptures
reflect Gordon’s fine quality craftsmanship.
