Laurenz Stockner

The prominent features of the vessels created by Laurenz Stockner are their perfectly harmonious shapes and natural beauty. Before working the metal – mainly cement copper from the Prettau mine – into the desired shape, Stockner first smelts it in a melting furnace that he built himself. It takes weeks until his copper sheet is ready to be worked. Then he forges and hammers the metal into precisely shaped bowls while at the same time testing the limits of the material. A slight touch will set the finished, extremely thin-walled bowls into vibration. The delicacy of these objects is often contrasted by a fissured or intensely colored surface and irregular edges. Since the year 2000 Stockner has regularly presented his work at exhibitions and also won important prizes, for example at the International South Tyrolean Crafts Competition in 2005, the Bavarian State Prize in 2007 and the Grassi Award in 2009.
