About Lars Rank
Lars Rank graduated from the Jutland Art Academy in 2001 and has worked on numerous art and design projects – always with ceramics playing a key role. Since 2004 he has specialised in designing and manufacturing high-quality ceramic products for the home.
In 2005 he was on a 4-month stay in Japan at Shigaraki Ceramic Cultural Park. Here he had the opportunity to explore the Japanese ceramic tradition and this has left a clear mark on his products.
Lars Rank’s work is rooted in the Scandinavian design tradition. All his products are hand-cast in porcelain, a process that demands both precision and dedication. Pieces often have clean forms accentuated with startling decoration. The design process is an interaction between the ceramic material and the idea. It’s not about controlling the ceramic material but about providing a framework in which it can flourish. Small variations make all Lars Rank products unique.
In 2007 he began a collaboration with writer and video artist Tomas Lagermand Lundme called “You Little Teapot” – a platform that examine an interdisciplinary togetherness where art and craft meets on a higher level. See more on www.youlittleteapot.com
