If you haven't heard of the artist Gordon Pembridge–he
needs to be on your radar. Now.
Born in Kenya, Pembridge now lives in picturesque New Zealand and he's always had a deep
connection with nature and his surroundings. As a fine artist and sculptor, he draws inspiration
from the beauty of the earth around him.
A series of his work that has been garnering worldwide attention is his beautiful, intricate, and
breath-taking wooden vessels that he carves and paints by hand.
Pembridge's artwork incorporates wildlife, natural
history, and nature itself.
His sculpting technique is quite fascinating and consists of a method using a woodturning lathe
to shape the timber that he's using. Once the shape has been formed, this is when Pembridge
gets down to the details.
Meticulously and beautifully, he hand-carves the wood into mind-blowing motifs which he then
hand-paints to display animals, plants, trees, and anything else that inspires him from his homes
of Kenya and New Zealand.
Pembridge uses artists colors and incredible detail to
create his stunning work.
