Gwyn Hannsen Pigott

QUIET SIMPLICITY
The ceramic work of artist, Gwyn Hanssen Pigott
Unadorned, the vessels of ceramic artist, Gwyn Hanssen Pigott, are arranged in a rhythmic procession, expressing an authoritative, yet, meditative presence. They are a counter to the "noise" of our daily lives and lead us into contemplation.
Too often, we are seduced by loud colors and patterns, making us think that more is best. However, Ms. Pigott's work gently nudges us to stop, step back, eliminate and reduce. We learn about ourselves as we journey into the artist's tranquil world
Ms. Pigott was born in Ballarat, Australia, 1935. She received her BA from the University of Melbourne and is recognized as one of Australia's most important artists.
