Artist Gordon Pembridge was born in Kenya and spent his first ten years there. As a young boy he was lucky enough to experience the wilds of Africa—along with many adventures in the bush—fostering his passion for natural history.

Now based in New Zealand, the full-time artist works in graphic design, 3D design, fine art, illustration, photography, digital imaging, and woodturning. In an ongoing series of jaw-dropping woodworks, Pembridge hand-carves and paints intricate scenes of nature into wooden bowls and vessels.

Gordon started woodturning in 2004 at the South Auckland Woodturners Guild. He loves exploring the boundaries of woodturning on the lathe and then hand carving of intricate designs into the timber.

You can find many more examples of his incredible artwork on his official website, GordonPembridge.com
