Born in 1932, Gordon Baldwin studied painting and pottery, first at the Lincoln School of Art and then at the Central School of Art and Design in London.

Strongly influenced by contemporary sculpture, Baldwin began handbuilding in the 1950's using a variety of techniques and has since gained a reputation as a major artist. He has made work in both earthenware and stoneware, often reworking and refiring pieces several times. Primarily concerned with the vessel, his work has become increasingly sculptural in nature.
