Pippa Hill

Born 1975
Dorset

Pippa hill Sculpture at Norton Way Gallery

 

 

Pippa lives in rural Dorset, where she grew up surrounded by farm animals and pets. With a young child’s instinctive creativity Pippa would dig up raw clay from the surrounding fields to sculpt the animals she saw around her.

Pippa bought her first kiln in 1985 and quickly established herself as a successful professional ceramic artist. Her animal sculptures are extremely well observed and she works with an understanding and knowledge born of a lifetime’s love of nature and the countryside.  Her work is infused with a fascination for her subjects and her material.

Pippa’s work is entirely hand-built in her studio and each piece is unique.  Pippa uses several different types of stoneware clay and fires to 1280°C in a gas kiln.
