About Large Engraved Floral Motif Vessel

Exquisitely hand engraved white floral patterns adorn this taupe-coloured porcelain vessel by Loren Kaplan. The classic shape and detailing are reminiscent of ancient vessels. Kaplan’s work is highly textured and designed 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
