ABOUT ROBERT GORDON
Around thirty years ago, Robert ‘Andy’ Gordon walked into a ten by eight foot tin shed, picked up a lump of clay and turned his potter’s wheel. The ‘Pack Track Pottery’ was born. But the story and inspiration for Robert Gordon dates long before 1979 and a rickety home made studio. Andy’s mother, the renowned Australian potter June Dyson, set up her studios in 1945. June formed a formidable partnership with her husband Colin who became the company’s business director. It was June’s second son Andy, who showed most interest in ceramics, helping out in the studio from his early twenties. It was inevitable that Andy would one day follow in his mother’s footsteps. And having married his English wife Barbara, the couple set about moulding their dream.
By 1987 it was time for the company to expand. A factory in Pakenham was bought and Robert Gordon had grown from a tin shed with a dirt floor to a large purpose built headquarters. It was also time to bring new staff into the business. Andy and Barbara didn’t have far to look, their four children Hannah, Kate, Bobby and Sam all joined the firm. History had repeated. Twenty years later and the children are an integral part of the company. Each one playing a different and vital role, helping to shape Robert Gordon today.
To keep up with the times and the demand, RGA is not only a manufacturer of bespoke Australian made pottery these days but an importer too. Designs dreamed up at our Pakenham HQ are sent off to China to be made into the pieces that become part of the ever more popular collections we are so proud of. More than sixty years of heritage and three generations of potters. Robert Gordon. Proud of its past. Its future; fired with imagination.
