Lisa Larson

22.4 2023 - 7.4 2024

Lisa Larson has, through her seven decade career, become one of Sweden’s most admired and internationally re-nowned ceramicists. Humorous animals, delicate portraits of children and powerful female figures all belong to her  repertoire of motifs. She has also designed tableware and has had an extensive production of unique ceramic works.
When Lisa Larson speaks about her artistry she empha-sizes how the clay itself provides new inspiration as soon as she gets it in her hands. She has often experimented with different techniques for shaping and decorating –  for example by allowing thrown clay to become sculptures, or carving expressive patterns into the soft surface.
This exhibition presents a wide selection of Lisa Larson’s work, from her well-known mass-produced objects, to sketches, prototypes and unique works. At the centre are the ceramics, but also on display are items in porcelain, wood, glass, and bronze. In addition, the exhibition contains works by artist colleagues who Lisa Larson feels close to, and folk art which she has collected as inspiration during her travels around the world.
