NEW 2021 Studio Collection

    To celebrate our studio’s 25th anniversary, we wanted to reimagine a piece from the very beginning. In 1996, the original Apple Leaf Vase was a major foundational design. Ephraim’s founder and primary potter, Kevin Hicks, remembers the Apple Leaf Vase as the first piece on which the studio successfully rendered leaves in a style that looked lively and natural. These hard-won early techniques laid the groundwork for so much of what has become the ‘Ephraim style. With the Apple Leaf Redux Vase we have built on the form and sculpting technique of the original and added our signature buds, providing a pop of color. This cabinet-sized vase is offered in our full line of classic Arts & Crafts colors. Handmade to order. No two pieces of the same design look exactly alike, that’s part of the magic of handmade ceramics. Because we lean away from technologies like molds, templates, and casts, each piece is wholly unique. Minor variations in size, decoration, color and finish are intrinsic to our pottery. Please expect and embrace the variation inherent in our process.

    To characterize the bishop in our chess-themed collection, we chose a bat—in all its robed glory—reaching for a poppy. The bat and the poppy, motifs that abound with Gothic style and symbolism, seemed a fitting representation of a medieval bishop. Our warm version features a red poppy and black bat against a rich, copper-patina glaze color, while our cool version represents a black bat amongst watery violet, periwinkle, and grey tones. Both renditions are wonderful, unique pieces to add to your collection. Handmade to order. No two pieces of the same design look exactly alike, that’s part of the magic of handmade ceramics.

    There is something understated and humble about a ginkgo leaf that makes it a fitting motif for the pawn figure in our chess-themed collection. This sweet piece is larger than some of our usual miniatures, but smaller than the typical cabinet vase. Two delicate ginkgo leaves flutter at the neck of this small bottle form. We offer the Ginkgo Pawn Bottle in two traditional Ephraim glaze variations—warm Algae and cool Teal—making this piece an easy addition to your existing collection.

    An octopus is a fitting creature to represent the king in our chess-themed collection. These cephalopods are one of the most intelligent sea creatures and are known to be solitary souls who avoid confrontation. A sinuous, winding octopus king tips his crown on this low-bellied vase. Ephraim artists individually hand-sculpt each octopus, constructing him from a wheel-thrown piece. Crenellation detail on the rim of the vase reinforces our king theme. We offer the King Vase in two distinctly different—warm and cool—glaze variations that provide a rich, interesting surface quality and atmosphere for this special piece.

    With segmented body armor and horse-like features, the seahorse is the perfect motif to represent the knight in our chess-themed collection of vases. On this piece, Ephraim artists soften the rigid sculpture of a nodding seahorse with a rounded wheel-thrown form and curvilinear carving to imply fluidity and movement. Both glaze offerings—warm sunny yellow and cool turquoise—provide an abundance of atmospheric context for our brave little seahorse.

    With Ephraim Pottery’s 25 year anniversary, Kevin Hicks—Ephraim’s founder and owner—marks 25 years of pottery-making at the studio with his innovative Owls’ Duet Taper Candle Holder and Vase. Kevin enjoys pushing technical boundaries, which he did here by combining the functionality of a taper candle holder with a vase. Kevin liked the idea of two perched owls illuminated by a flickering candlelight. He imagines a night scene where a pair of owls call to each other as they protect their nest. The stylized owls, trees, and leaves, as well as the tonal glaze application enhance the uniqueness and antique-quality of this very special piece. It is our tradition at Ephraim for artists to commemorate a milestone at the pottery with a special design. This year Kevin Hicks celebrates this momentous milestones. Owls’ Duet Taper Candle Holder and Vase is a limited-edition design available for only one year, through March 2022.
