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.
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.
