Gwyn Hanssen Pigott OAM (1935–2013) was an Australian ceramic artist. She was attributed as one of Australia’s most significant contemporary artists. By the mature she died she was regarded as “one of the world’s greatest contemporary potters”. She worked in Australia, England, Europe, the USA, New Zealand, Japan and Korea. In a career spanning nearly 60 years, influences from her apprenticeships to English potters were nevertheless apparent in her highly developed work. But in the 1980s she turned away from production pottery to making porcelain still-life groups largely influenced by the Italian painter Giorgio Morandi.
