Pippa grew up in the Dorset countryside surrounded by animals, and started collecting clay in the ploughed fields surrounding her home, sculpting the animals around her.
When she left school she bought a kiln and small potter’s wheel and began making pots at home. In 2002 Pippa moved to Charlton Horethorne and began sculpting ceramic animals for a living.
All of Pippa’s ceramic work is made in stoneware clay and is coloured with slips, glazes and oxides. She also gets her sculptures cast in bronze resin which allows her to make pieces which would be impossible in fired clay.
