  • About the work

Ceramic.

This stunning deep blue porcelain piece by Loren Kaplan was inspired by a rich history. The unique shape of this vessel with two ‘spouts’ resembles ancient ‘wedding’ vessels. In North American Indigenous cultures, the parents of a bride and groom would create a clay vase in this shape to be used in traditional wedding ceremonies. Each ‘spout’ represents the husband and wife and the space between the two is said to symbolize the couple's circle of life. “In my work I have attempted to integrate symbolic, visual, tactile and spiritual values blending form, function and meaning.” 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.

“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 inbetween, defined spaces of emptiness making room for something to be held.” Loren Kaplan
