This exquisitely detailed and finely crafted porcelain vessel was created by ceramicist Loren Kaplan. It’s delicate and intricate patterns reference both ancient cultures and natural symbolism. “In my work I have attempted to integrate symbolic, visual, tactile and spiritual values blending form, function and meaning. 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 She earned a BFA from the University of Witwatersrand, Johannesburg and studied at the Kim Sacks School of Ceramics. In 1995 she established a studio and began a teaching career with the Visual Arts and Crafts Academy in Johannesburg. Kaplan has exhibited regularly in South Africa and Toronto and received numerous awards. Her work is held in many private collections and in the South African Constitutional Court Art Collection.
