About Pippa Hill
Pippa Hill is based 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. As she sculpts she recalls the physicality of animals; the sensations of milk- ing a cow, tacking up a horse or skinning a rabbit.
In recent years Pippa has been creating bronze sculptures which has stretched the boundaries of her work and influenced the changing style of her ceramic sculptures.
In 2005 Pippa started teaching ceramic classes at her studio in Dorset. These are extremely successful, with her students exhibiting their work regularly.
