About White on White Engraved Jar

Reminiscent of the ceramic vessels used in ancient cultures, Loren Kaplan creates beautiful porcelain jars decorated with finely engraved details. This piece is predominantly white with a contrasting creamy-white coloured leaf motif. 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
