An Iconic New Collaboration - Art-Inspired Ceramics From Robert Gordon x David Bromley

Shopping

Robert Gordon is one of the last remaining production potteries in Australia – a family business that has been creating much-loved ceramics in Melbourne for over 75 years. The month marks a significant milestone for the heritage Australian brand – they’ve teamed up with iconic artist David Bromley and his partner Yuge to create a stunning range of ceramics emblazoned with David’s distinctive artwork.

To celebrate this very special collaboration, Myer stores in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane will dedicate an entire window display to the collection, with Bromley and Robert Gordon himself even making an appearance in the Melbourne windows this week – you gotta love that old-school retail magic!

‘This really is a moment in time, as a family business, that I’ll mark down as certainly one of the best projects I’ve worked on.’ Sam Gordon.

Australia’s largest production pottery, Robert Gordon, has teamed up with artist David Bromley on a new range of stoneware ceramic pieces. Robert Gordon x Bromley&Co pays homage to the history of both the Melbourne-based pottery, and the celebrated artist, bringing together two creative Australian greats!

This isn’t the first time the Gordon family have worked with the renowned Australian artist. ‘Hanging in the pottery is a beautiful painting David did of our father and grandfather surrounded by pots, painted around five years ago’, says Sam Gordon, one of the four Gordons in the family business. The pottery has made objects and dinnerware for David and Yuge over the years, and have always toyed with the idea of a bigger project – this collaboration was a long time coming!

David, Yuge and Michael Kalnins (Myer’s tabletop buyer, who is also a potter and got behind this collaboration from the get-go) were engaged in every step of the process of bringing this collection to life. Prototypes of each shape were selected from the Robert Gordon pottery in Pakenham, and following this, the design team then took to the process of wrapping Bromley’s artwork onto each piece.

For the Gordon family, this collaboration represents a real milestone. Working on this bespoke collection, with the support of a major department store, is a big deal. ‘I love the nostalgia of a grand department store where point of sale, displays and service are really well considered and thoughtful’, Sam says.

The Robert Gordon x Bromley&Co collection, which launches tomorrow, will have a major display in the front windows of Myer in George St, Sydney, as well as Bourke St, Melbourne, and in Brisbane. To celebrate the launch, Robert Gordon and David will become part of the window displays themselves – painting and making pots live in the Myer Bourke Street Windows on January 27th from 9am-11am and Saturday February 1st from 11am-2pm!

Robert Gordon x Bromley&Co will be available at Myer stores from January 27th. See Robert Gordon and David Bromley painting and making pots in the Myer Bourke Street Windows on January 27th from 9am-11am and Saturday February 1st from 11am-2pm.
