With an essay by Peter Pakesch

In the late 1990's, Larner discovered the material of ceramic for her artistic practice. Fascinated by the autonomy of this ancient medium, the artist experiments with various compositions and forms. Especially the process of firing and glazing harbours a moment of unpredictability and chance that is significant for the final object and which adds an uncontrollable component to the work with ceramics. Larner creates heavy forms, which, coated with coloured epoxy, describe intensive, shimmering colour gradients that emphasise the underlying shape. The surface of the objects is often crossed by cracks and ruptures. Flaws that Larner initially tried to restore but which she accepted over time as inherent instability of the material.
