Gwyn Hanssen Pigott is internationally acclaimed as one of Australia’s most significant and influential artists. Featured in numerous international surveys of contemporary crafts practices, her work is admired by curators and collectors.

Pigott’s attention to tonal graduation and her signature still life groupings of ceramic vessels into families, clusters and trails reflect her concerns of formal purity and beauty, as well as her profound relationship with pots – ‘useful, everyday, ordinary pots’ – that she says were her ‘daily pleasure mines’.

Pigott completed a Bachelor of Fine Art at the University of Melbourne in 1954, before training with leading potters in London. She established studios in London and France as well as in Australia and has held residencies throughout Australia. Pigott’s works have been exhibited in the UK, the USA, France, New Zealand and Australia. Her works are held in major public and private collections internationally, including at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, Los Angeles County Museum of Art in Los Angeles and the Fina Gomez Collection in Paris. Her work is held in the collections of all Australian state galleries and at the National Gallery of Australia.

Vale Gwyn Hanssen Pigott

It is with great sadness that the gallery announces that Gwyn Hanssen Pigott died peacefully last week in hospital in London after suffering a stroke. Her family and friends were with her. She was in London for a solo exhibition of her new work. Amongst many career highlights, she received the Order of Australia Medal in 2002, exhibited extensively overseas including at Tate, St Ives and had a survey exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria in 2005. Her work is held in many collections both in Australia and overseas. Gwyn was 77 years old. Vale Gwyn.


Gwyn Hanssen Pigott at Ipswich Art Gallery

The exhibition entitled The Alchemy of Making surveys the work of renowned Australian ceramic artist Gwyn Hanssen Pigott over the last two decades, with a particular focus on the meticulous process that underpins the creation of her work. While informed by the traditions of functional ceramics,  Hanssen Pigott invites her audience to explore the subtleties of profile, colour, line, surface and the careful arrangements at play within the works.

Held at Ipswich Art Gallery, the exhibition runs until 23 October 2011.
