Collection: Leah Kaplan

Introducing the phenomenal work of Philadelphia based ceramic artist, Leah Kaplan to the CC gallery. Leah Kaplan has been working in clay for 30 years, honing her skills in studios and schools in New York City, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia. 

Leah explores movement, texture and translucency through sculptural forms. Her signature porcelain vessels blend fluidity with minimalism, belying intricate construction that beckons viewers to take a closer look. Leah’s process is rooted in age-old handbuilding techniques, such as pinching, coiling and slab-building, but her deep dive into porcelain’s materiality often yields surprising results.
