Janaki Larsen
Vancouver, Canada


Janaki Larsen grew up in the prairies of Alberta and on the coast of British Columbia. The daughter of artists, she attended the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design where she studied ceramics. Each of her pieces is hand-thrown and hand-glazed so no two are exactly alike. Each work carries its own raw identity with a quiet and monochromatic aesthetic that feels as if it has survived from another time and place. Larsen finds her inspiration in clay from the earth.  

"I love dirt. Everything about it, the colors, the smell, the feel. It wasn’t the academic aspect of art that really interested me, I just wanted to make things."
