Second skin unfired
by Leah Kaplan
Based in Philadelphia, my studio practice is an ongoing exploration of movement, texture and translucency through sculptural forms. My porcelain vessels blend fluidity with minimalism, belying intricate construction that beckons viewers to take a closer look. Light also transforms my work, casting shadows and setting surfaces aglow, as it illuminates my pieces.
I draw inspiration from architecture and the natural world, as well as other craft mediums. The latter influence grew out of my years helping artisans preserve their artistic heritages and find markets for their work. In that role, I was fortunate to meet craftspeople making extraordinary objects using time-honored techniques and materials, an experience that continues to inform my vessel-making and practice decades later.
Each DOCUMENTED ART print is made to order in Australia by printing professionals with over 20 years experience. We use the finest quality paper – smooth matt 300 gsm 100% cotton rag (with no optical brighteners) and archival inks which means your print is made to last a lifetime.
Our standard paper size is A3 (29.7 x 42.0 cm, 11.69 x 16.53 inches)
Square prints are 29.7 x 29.7 cm (11.69 x 11.69 inches)
If you choose to include a white border, the image size will be 2.5 cm (1 inch) smaller than these dimensions.
Our handcrafted, framed prints are made with plexiglass because it's light, shatterproof and offers UV protection - ensuring durability and long term protection. Our high quality mouldings are 20mm wide with a deep 40mm profile.
