About Engraved Bowl With Yellow

Ceramicist Loren Kaplan has acquired an international reputation for her exquisitely detailed, beautiful vessels. The Canadian artist’s collection of bowls are hand-coiled and engraved—this one with a delicate floral motif in crisp white against a neutral base. Inspired by the colour and form of ancient vessels, the bright yellow interior colour of this bowl makes it modern. One of a series.

“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

“Within them all, they hold the silence and meditation of the making, the time, the process and the attention to detail. Her focus is on the space-in-between; defined spaces of emptiness making room for something to be held.” Gallery Little Red
