Leah Kaplan

Leah Kaplan explores movement, texture and translucency through sculptural vessels. Working exclusively in porcelain, employing clear glaze or none at all, Leah probes and pushes the material’s unique properties by experimenting with different hand-building methods. Each process -- pressing, rolling, draping, layering -- has its own particular rhythm and feel, altering how she experiences and interacts with a piece. Some methods require meticulousness; others are fast and loose. Some techniques demand concentration, like a high wire act; others allow her mind to drift and her hands to take over. In the end, it is this iterative process — driven by intent and intuition — from which Leah’s work emerges. Each piece is a material expression of tension and balance amidst competing impulses.
