Pippin Drysdale

Lines of Site I

Inspired by the Australian landscape, Pippin Drysdale's work has its basis in journeys through the varied environments of her home state, Western Australia. Her responses to the land are intuitive and emotional, driven by a need to capture an "essence" in simplicity of form and depth of colour

Technically Pippin’s works are created in continual experimentation with glazes, lustres, resists and methods of firing. Each new body of work begins with weeks of preparation making and trialling a unique palette of new glazes that will enable Pippin to create her distinctive layered, three-dimensional surfaces.

Born in Melbourne, Pippin studied ceramics in Perth. She is involved in an active programme of lectures, workshops and residencies across Australia and around the world. She has demonstrated and taught in places as varied as the Swansea Art College (Wales), the Deruta Grazia Maioliche Factory (Italy), Princeton University (USA), and Tomsk University (Siberia). Her work is represented in many Australian and international collections including the National Gallery of Australia; Art Gallery of Western Australia; Holmes รก Court Collection (Perth, WA), Tomsk State Gallery and Museum (Siberia), Auckland Museum and Art Gallery (New Zealand), Museum of Modern Art (Gifu Japan), Cheongju Museum and Art Gallery (Korea), Twenty-First Century Museum (Kanazawa Japan) and the Museo del Ceramica, Faenza, Italy
