Founder & Chief-Creator
Susan Gordon is truly a creator at heart. She is dedicated to bringing timeless beauty into everyday life, and her love of clay and commitment to lifelong pieces set the tone for her journey with ceramics. Keeping classic taste at the core of her design, what began as handmade pottery and jewelry has become so much more. Susan will tell you, once she is able to get clay into her hands a conversation begins as the clay responds to her movements. This ability to mold a conversation into a creation has also helped grow her collection to include curated collaborations with other creators. She thrives on her desire to create — to create her art, to create a collaborative environment, and to create a community for others to engage and share
classic at its core but
Each of our pieces are made with intention and skill. Handmade by clay, glazed with attention to detail, and finished with accents of 22k gold luster. Our pieces maintain a balance between classic designs and purposeful evolution. Each piece and design fall within one of these three categories: Classics, Collections, or Ever Evolving.
Our Categories of Pottery
Our readily available collection of core products that make up the foundation of our brand. These classic and beautiful pieces are available year round. They are the perfect staples to add to your collection and make the perfect gift for any loved one.
Our seasonally available collection of core products that have evolved overtime. These unique and beautifully designed pieces are released each season and only available for a limited time. The designs on each piece are meant to evoke a sense of nostalgia and are the perfect additions to a growing Susan Gordon collection.
Our ever-evolving collection of one-of-a kind products are limited edition. These special pieces are released one time, and once they are gone, they are gone. Susan works to create a unique one-off design based on what is inspiring her in her life at the time, and she enjoys bringing her community along with her on the creative journey to bring to life each ever-evolving collection.
Mission & Purpose
Our mission at Susan Gordon is to create products that are modern, feminine, and refined in detail. Our aesthetic is classic at its core, but purposefully ever-evolving. In 2019, the first Susan Gordon storefront opened in Homewood AL, including both a retail storefront and studio space for Susan and her team to continue practicing their craft.
Thoughtfully made pieces
Look into Our Process
Each unique piece of pottery, jewelry, art and more starts as a humble wad of squishy clay and is molded by hand into a piece of ceramic art. More than five pairs of eyes and hands thoroughly examine the craftsmanship of each piece as it goes through the process of making, smoothing, glazing, golding, sanding and then a final quality check, and on to fulfillment.
