Many thanks to our Joburg bureau chief, Kerstin Eser for today’s post.

Ceramicist Loren Kaplan was previously in partnership with renowned local potter Anthony Shapiro, who is best known for his minimalist tableware in soft celadon glazes. Having since embarked on a solo career, Loren’s flair for embellishment has come to the fore in the exquisite patterns she applies to her light diffusers, lamp shades, tealight holders and vessels of various sizes.

Inspired by sand patterns, her latest collection is once again beautifully adorned with her intricately detailed, handmade markings. She has obviously found her voice and a singular one at that.
