Born in 1932, Gordon Baldwin studied painting and pottery at Lincoln School of Art. It was at Lincoln that Gordon met his wife Nancy, a painter, with whom he often collaborates. The pair continued their studies together at the Central School of Art, London.

After decades of work, the husband and wife team embarked on a new phase of their creative partnership. In the wake of some inspiring discussions, Gordon built a series of vessel forms – three-dimensional canvases – which were then further animated and decorated through Nancy’s mark-making, modelling, carving, and painting with glazes. The resulting series truly combines the creative strengths of both.
