About Black Rim Vessel 2

With her striking series of black and white vessels, Loren Kaplan has made an ancient art contemporary. As an homage to her South African roots, the Toronto based artist has created a series of black and white vessels that represent the people and the land. This organic-shaped piece is predominantly white and rimmed in a glossy bold black stripe.

“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. In 1995 she established a studio and began a teaching career with the Visual Arts and Crafts Academy in Johannesburg. Kaplan has exhibited regularly in South Africa and Toronto and received numerous awards. Her work is held in many private collections and in the South African Constitutional Court Art Collection.
