Porcelain Tablescapes and Vessels by Australian Ceramist Pippin Drysdale
3:00 – 6:00 p.m.
Booker-Lowe is pleased to present 38 new porcelain vessels and closed forms from Pippin Drysdale's major solo exhibition of more than 200 works at the Australian Embassy in Washington DC. These works were reserved prior to the opening of the Embassy exhibition, which was fortunate, because major collectors from England and the northeast quickly acquired a large number of the porcelains!
The elegant hand-thrown vessels, which seem to float from their delicate bases, and the closed forms -- their experimental shapes perfected during the past two years -- incorporate the fine incising and rich palettes that are signatures of Pip's work. She is one of Australia's leading ceramics artists, with her porcelains included in major public and private collections throughout the world.
Vessels and closed forms in the Booker-Lowe exhibition range from 4.3" to more than 18" in height. Works are priced individually, from $700. to $8800., and are subject to prior sale.
This exhibition is generously co-sponsored by the City of Perth, Chevron, and the Government of Western Australia.

Professor Ted Snell AM, University of Western Australia, said of Pip Drysdale's work:
"The richness of the surface of the Tanami works is the . . . lure and first attraction; it is the play between the void of colour glimpsed over the horizon line of the lip and the complex surface that makes these works exceptional. The interior gradation down to a deeply resonant base is hypnotic and literally breathtaking."
