Peter Karner ~ Hesperus, CO

Peter Karner produces hand-thrown, hand-altered, and hand-built functional stoneware. He aspires to create pottery that is both timeless and modern through his intrigue with form and decoration. The inspiration for his pots comes mainly from his mother, a quilter, and his exposure from childhood to African and Japanese textiles. Peter’s decorative patterns are created free-hand and are applied in multiple layers using wax resist and brushwork methods. The base glazes of the decorations are designed to capture carbon from the atmosphere of the kiln. This “carbontrap” effect is random and adds to the overall energy of the pot - making each piece truly one-of-a-kind.
