Peter Karner

Peter Karner works full time from his home/studio at Hesperus in the La Plata Mountains in Southwest Colorado. Peter aspires to create pottery that is both timeless and modern through the evolution of his intrigue with form and decoration. “I work with stoneware. My pots are thrown, thrown and altered, or hand-built. To achieve visual depth in my patterns, I employ five elements. Four of these–wax resist, latex, dipping, and brushwork–are applied to bisqued pots. The pots are then high-fired in a heavy reduction atmosphere with the intent of trapping carbon in the base glaze. It is trapped carbon that is the fifth and random element. Each pot is designed to serve a functional purpose and is compatible with modern appliance. I produce six bodies of work a year. Each body of work offers me the opportunity to explore new ideas and refine existing ones. ” The landscape around his home, calligraphy, textiles and the pottery of the past have influenced his glaze.
