Was a Polish painter and potter known for her distinctive ceramic pieces. Painted with delicate images of women, horses, and birds, her works have a whimsical quality reminiscent of the French-Russian artist. In short, humble clay becomes a medium for painting, Pillin said.The limit of which is defined only by the zeal and inspiration of the artist. Born Polia Sukonic in 1909 in Poland, she immigrated with her family to the United States at age 15.
She went on to study sculpture and painting at the Jewish Peoples Institute in Chicago. In 1927, she met her future husband the Ukrainian immigrant poet William Pillin. The artist and her husband moved to Los Angeles in 1948, where she transformed their garage into her pottery studio.
She died in Los Angeles, CA in 1992. Today, her works are held in the collections of the Dallas Museum of Fine Art and the Syracuse Museum of Fine Art - Art Net.
