Anna Gordon

sorry this post is late, I sent it yesterday but it clearly never went through :0(



I love Anna Gordon's work. She graduated the year before me (from Edinburgh College of Art, not the same as me) and both her degree show and her postgrad show the following year were filled with little pieces of perfection.
I'm also fairly sure she was showing at New Designers the same year as me (1994) though for her that would have been with her Postgrad work.

If I remember rightly I saw her work and Grainne Morton's at the same time at the Edinburgh Degree Show, so I must have been pretty overwhelmed by the loveliness of it all.

Interestingly their work, though different at the time, is becoming more similar as time goes on with both of them working on twig-ish pieces these days.

For those who are in the area this years ECA show starts on the 17th of June and runs till the 27th. Infact, Edinburgh arty bloggers (or those who will travel), shall we meet up and see the show together? If you fancy it post your interest here and I'll contact you in June to sort a date.

Count me in, Cally!
Incedentally, I have sold many of Anna's pieces at the gallery where I used to work.
They are lovely...

I would love to be with you too, but may have to opt to being a fly on the wall... I love the pin with the coral colored beads, do you think its amber? Need to go look at her sight now...

Ulla - I'm not sure, but maybe Daphne might know :0)

Garnets maybe? My knowledge of precious stones is very limited...

Hi Cally,

Thanks for the invite through, i always enjoy visiting the Edinburgh jewellry degree show. Unfortunately I don't think I am going to make it through as I am moving house around that time and will be

1. very poor
2. rushing about packing boxes.

However I am up for a meet up any time after the move :)

I wish, I wish, but if I even make it down for the Stamp Fair at tne Corn Exchange (more prosaic I know) I'll be ecstatic. Enjoy the loveliness.
