Australian ceramist Larissa Warren has her own unique approach to clay. With a passion for traditional Japanese neriage (pattern) techniques, Larissa creates some engaging surfaces by combining translucent porcelain, colour and mixed textured clay.

Larissa designs and creates distinctive original artwork from her home studio, located in her renovated fisherman’s hut on the Gold Coast. Having graduated from Griffith University in 2000 with a degree in Fine Art and another in Secondary Art Education, Larissa has spent 17 years teaching art, photography and ceramics.

She exhibits work frequently in art awards and several group shows around Australia and will be exhibiting with Left Bank Gallery in June and December. 

A finalist in the Clunes Ceramic Award, Moreton Bay Art prize, the Rotary Art prize and People’s Choice winner in last year’s Gold Coast International Ceramic Art Award. In June, L.A based Ann330 Gallery presented Larissa’s work in America’s largest design Fair: Dwell on Design. 

Please contact Larissa for private and commercial commissions, teaching and workshops and exhibiting opportunities. 

Affectionately nicknamed 'ratbag' by her husband of 11 years, her studio (often messy with numerous projects & collections) took on the same name.
