Gordon Crosby first discovered pottery at the Institute of Education in London in the 1950's, where William Newland was in charge of the Ceramics department. Gordon followed this up by continuing his pottery education at the Central School of Art, which he attended two evenings a week for three years. There he was taught by two very influential potters, Ruth Duckworth and Dan Arbeid, who continue to have an influence on Gordon's work.

Throughout this period and for much of his working life Gordon taught art at
Wimbledon College, so pottery has had to take a back seat. However, since taking early retirement Gordon has concentrated on his pottery resulting in him exhibiting at the Galerie Besson as well as the Harlequin Gallery.

Besides his early teachers, Gordon admits to being influenced by the American potters Peter Voulkos and Paul Soldner. Recently when I mentioned to one of my American clients that the piece of Gordon's work she was looking at was "a bit like Voulkos" she replied "Yes, but better." Praise indeed.

Gordon exhibited at the Harlequin Gallery in July 2001and March 2003 and in the teabowl exhibition held in March 2006.
