Delicately detailed floral petals adorn this elegant vessel by ceramicist Loren Kaplan. Its classic shape is enhanced by its neutral taupe colour and the contrasting crisp white of the hand engraved petals. Kaplan’s work is highly textured and is 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
