2018 Fall Collection – Limited Edition

As we celebrate the season of abundant harvest and cool-weather gatherings, fall’s motifs deeply inspire us. The altered autumn light calls our attention to bright, orange-dotted pumpkin patches; eerie, bat-filled skies; and crunchy, oak leaf-scattered landscapes.

Bumble Patch Pumpkin – Limited Edition

$ 218.00

A plump bumble bee settles on the tallest pumpkin in the pumpkin patch. Vibrant orange glaze, treated with a unique splattering technique, imbues this piece with whimsy and depth. Bumble Patch is Ephraim’s third rendering in our series of limited edition ceramic pumpkins.

-Limited Edition 2018 Fall Collection design available August 24th – September 21st
-Thrown, sculpted & glazed by hand
-Approximately 8.5″H x 4.25″W, L14

Petite Oak Bowl – Limited Edition

$ 148.00

The understated beauty of oak leaves and acorns adorn this sweet, little bowl. Ephraim potters create a distinctive texture on its form while throwing this piece on the potters’ wheel. This texture, which makes the glaze break in rich and interesting ways, engages one to behold it.

-Limited Edition 2018 Fall Collection design available August 24th – September 21st
-Thrown, sculpted & glazed by hand
-Approximately 2.25″H x 4.25″W
-Traditional earthenware is porous; liner recommended for use with water, L13

Gotham Crossing Vase – Limited Edition

$ 458.00

Did you know that Central Park, amidst its 25 bridges, is considered a haven for New York City’s bat-sighting enthusiasts? Ephraim’s Gotham Crossing Vase marries the quintessential architecture of bridges with the quintessential architecture of bats. The result is a strong, nocturnal design that takes on an abstract sensibility, offered in two moody glaze combinations.

-Limited Edition 2018 Fall Collection design available August 24th – September 21st
-Thrown, sculpted & glazed by hand
-Approximately 11″H x 8.5″W
-Traditional earthenware is porous; liner recommended for use with water,  L15

Video: Making the Miniature Snowdrop Tile

See Jennifer in action glazing the Miniature Snowdrop Tile in this one minute video.

At the studio, we make a wide selection of unique art tiles. Our innovative tile-making system allows us to rapidly test new designs and all of the artists involve themselves in tile design. We want to shine a light on Jennifer Alexander’s tile designs. Her tiles – known in the studio as the ‘Jennifer tiles’ – have a distinctive style with heavy outlines and thick, rich glaze application. Jennifer was inspired by the idea of translating stained glass design to ceramic art. We love the rustic, handmade quality of these tiles, which complement our other pottery.

Experimental Pottery – Fall 2017

Online Experimental Pottery Event

October 18, 2017 – Beginning at 12 PM (CDT)
Shop from our website during this special offering of one-of-a-kind Experimental pieces. Each item will be unique and the exact item shown in the photos.

Tips for online buying during Experimental Sales:

1. Log in to your account (or create an account) so that your personal info is saved and ready for you to checkout as quickly as possible. For your security, we do not allow you to save your credit card number.

2. Refresh your browser frequently to see accurate availability. If you have the Experimental page loaded and just wait for the items to appear at 12 PM you will miss the sale. Be sure to refresh your browser window.

3. The first person to complete a transaction with an item will receive that item. It is possible to have items in your cart that become unavailable if another buyer completes their transaction before you. Just having an item in your cart does not guarantee that you will be able to buy the item.

4. We will offer free shipping on all orders, so you do not need to worry about multiple shipping charges if you make multiple purchases.

5. Our Wisconsin studio is in Central Daylight Time. The Experimentals will become available starting at 12 PM (CDT).

6. If items sell out and you are not able to purchase an item that you really want, please contact us in the studio to discuss the possibility of custom work. We can never make an exact duplicate, but we can create something similar that would bear the custom “C” stamp.

7. During online Experimental sales, we experience heavy web traffic that is mostly handled very well by our ever-improving website, but the rush of shoppers can cause occasional errors to happen in the checkout process. The typical error is for the system to sell 2 of a one-of-a-kind item. In this rare case, we contact the second buyer and remedy the situation with a mutually agreeable solution. We ask for your understanding should this unlikely event occur during your shopping experience.
