Gordon Glasgow was born in London and as a child grew interested in design and forms.  His uncle taught him to measure and cut trousers, having learned in turn from his father, a tailor. Gordon’s parents instilled self reliance and an open mind to learn new things.He left London for New York City; while becoming a citizen he also encountered a range of art, and cultures of artful living. A journey west propelled him to Berkeley California, where he worked in Antique restoration, model-making, and museum installations.  This work drew him in to further explore design and forms, and to learn the properties of various materials.  Meanwhile, in his own studio he has sketched and prototyped handbags, jewelry, furniture, lamps, ceramics, and sculpture.

"My recent work has developed through an appreciation of the animal world, through the structures they create and their anatomy. I was inspired by daily encounters, and stories of animal exploits. These events also motivated me to use natural materials in creating tableaus which chronicle my concerns within our ever changing world."  –Gordon Glasgow
