PRUE PIPER – Slip decorated earthenware

PRUE PIPER – Slip decorated earthenware

Prue Piper’s fantastical decorated earthenware zings with colour and life, testament to her love of diverse cultures. Museums and nature are a source of inspiration, “I tend to rip off patterns, shapes, ideas from all over the world, Indonesia, Columbia, the Aztecs.”

A biochemist by profession, she began working with clay at lessons in Frome some 40 years ago and now uses the kiln that once belonged to her father in-law John Piper.

A collection of her pieces will be on view in the museum from Saturday 5 November, until January 2017, with a small number of mugs and jugs for sale.
