About Merete Larsen


Finn Terman Frederiksen

Larsen has been turning wood for the last ten years and has acquired an international reputation for her nearly translucent bowls, sculpted with infinite delicacy. By extending the turning process to the limits of the extreme, she obtains, from the raw and massive structure of her material, works of a paradoxical and almost immaterial lightness. These delicate and subtle vessels transcend the decorative and utilitarian aspects of her craft to exist as purely sculptural objects with forms of sublime purity. In perfect equilibrium, they appear to be engaged in a profound and singular dialogue with the surrounding Merete space.
