The 2019 winter season brings nineteen years of holiday tradition to Ephraim. In 2001 we began creating an annual, numbered-edition piece that encapsulates winter’s charm and warmth. Each year since, we carry the tradition forward and wrap our Winter Collection of seasonal offerings around one uniquely-designed collectible vessel.

Winter Songbird Vase, Winter Songbird Ornament, Eyecatcher Vase

This year, the Eyecatcher Vase builds on the Winter Songbird Vase and Winter Songbird Ornament designs from 2018. Amid the low light and grey tones of a wintry landscape, the bright red cardinal stands out as a little decoration, or eyecatcher. This hand-thrown, hand-sculpted vase celebrates our favorite wintertime visitor—the famous Northern Cardinal. A solitary cardinal perches on a pine branch, back-dropped by rich green chestnut glaze and mottled, earthy golden tones that accentuate this majestic figure’s bright red focal points.
