About the piece
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.

The inspiration for this piece is from a group of Tui (the birds) here in New Zealand in a Kowhai tree. This is a well known phenomenon in New Zealand and can be very amusing watching the “soap opera” as the Tui argue, fuss and posture to each other over the best flowers to sip nectar from.

About the artist
GORDON PEMBRIDGE was born in Kenya and spent his first ten years there. As a young boy being lucky enough to experience the wilds of Africa, along with many adventures in the bush, Gordon has developed a passion for natural history.

Gordon completed his education at boarding school Wanganui, New Zealand, also attending art school and various courses in design and chose the photographic trade as a career. Gordon now works for himself and is involved in graphic design, fine art, illustration, photography, digital imaging and woodturning.
