Liselott Olofsson

I work in various forms of ceramics from fine detailed porcelain to installations and traditional wheel-thrown forms.

My most recent work is a return to a technique I began studying at the turn of the century, Japanese Raku fired vessels. My latest work incorporates many themes and motifs that have become recurrent in my career, the power of femininity, evocations of motherhood with all of its sacrifice and scarring, and a natural tendency to create beautiful forms with consummate craftsmanship, no matter the subject or technique involved.
