The potter Gywn Hanssen Pigott has earned acclaim for her wood-fired porcelains and the craftsmanship demonstrated in her range of ceramics and minimalist forms. She is central to the development of 20th century studio pottery in Australia and around the world . She has been cited for a number of honors, one being the new Clemenger Contemporary Art Award (2003) from the National Gallery of Victoria. Her pieces are the focus of a NGV exhibition (through March, 2006). Her vessels, bowls, bottles, teapots and cups have a quietude, a metaphysical quality and a meticulous attention to form, critics say, evocative of the still-life paintings of Italian artist Giorgio Morandi. Galleries in New York, Paris, London and Taipei regularly show her pieces and they are part of the collections in the Victoria and Albert, Belfast and Winnepeg Museums, and the Los Angeles County Museum, among others.
