Peter Karner works with stoneware. His pots are thrown, thrown and altered, or hand-built. To achieve visual depth in his patterns, he employs 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 appliances.
