Lisa Larson is a Swedish ceramist who is especially popular in Japan. Her
well-known warm and friendly animal forms have been produced in Gustavsberg.
Alongside her design work, Lisa has always experimented with her own unique
ceramics, creating abstractly decorated vessels and human sculptures that
convey both her sense of humor and a deeper, more somber, side. The Japanese
public has great interest in her works and is also fascinated by her lifestyle
and energy. She is now continuing to create works even at the age of 88.
In this exhibition, we focus on introducing various cultures in the world
and the artists around Lisa Larson that she encountered during her creation
together with her imaginative works cultivated and influenced by them.
About 200 works by Lisa Larson from her beginning to the recent years and
also about 20 works by the other artists like Stig Lindberg representing
Scandinavian art are exhibited. Through the exhibition, we can follow Lisa
Larson’s “Journey through Time” and explore the charm of her works full
