Intricate patterns reminiscent of ancient ceramics adorn Loren Kaplan’s newest porcelain jars. This piece in jewel-toned aqua contrasts beautifully with the neutral crème and crisp white floral motif engraved on the jar’s body, base and lid. Like all of Kaplan’s textured work it begs to be touched. “My work resonates with light, sound, pattern and texture… I make vessels because containers are about potential. My focus is on the space in between, defined spaces of emptiness making room for something to be held.” Loren Kaplan She earned a BFA from the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg and studied at the Kim Sacks School of Ceramics.
