About the Artist

Ceramicist Pippin Drysdale lives and works in Fremantle, Western Australia. Her inspiration is the grandeur of Australia's ancient and majestic landscape. Her relationship with the land is profound and personal, driven by her desire to capture the essential beauty through simplicity of form, depth and colour. Her work in response is intuitive and emotional rather than prescriptive and defining. The characteristic glazes and firings used in her work are the result of tireless personal research. She continually experiments with firing methods and multi-layered coloured glazing in creating distinctive three-dimensional surfaces.

"Memories of quiet times, reflective of open spaces, shifting sands and changing hues. All this and more is the land of the Australian Tanami Desert. There is a sense of old-time stories, of woven dreams - the weft and warp of an ancient place. On the face of this there is a sameness, yet the land bursts with abundance in good seasons - hidden secrets of rich places and there to be found by those who understand. The traces, the lines, evoke the richness of a diverse and changing landscape which colours its responses - a chameleon of places."
