Pippin Drysdale is an outstanding ceramic artist creating landscaped works of art. It is one thing to create an amazing and unique vessel but to then use it as a canvas to intricately tell a visual story is extraordinary. When I first came across the work of Pippin I was stopped dead in my tracks. The individual pieces stood on their own but when multiple pieces were grouped together, they created a landscape that took me to a foreign land. The colors are another creative element that I am not used to seeing on ceramics but that is what makes them that much more beautiful. Please take a minute and visit her site, you won’t be sorry.
“The process of analysis, review and revision continues until she is convinced she has captured the character of each new series of work. The landscape is the ever-constant lure, the catalyst for work, the connecting point and anchor for each new development. Her works is ambitious. It negotiates interweaving journeys through various landscapes describing her artistic practice and her engagement with the sites she documents. Through a continuing investigation of the flora and landforms of these unique areas of Australia and a commitment to engaging with the cultural, social and political agendas that are shaping them, she is open to embrace each new creative challenge.”
