About White Striped Vessel 1

The compelling design is at once contemporary and traditional. This is Loren Kaplan. The Toronto based ceramicist has created a series of organic shaped vessels in bold black and white. The glossy black base provides an elegant contrast to the white stripes—both of which are symbolic of the people and the land of South Africa.

“All of this, for me, represents a sense of home, of belonging, of life and aliveness.”
