Pottery Vases

  • The Amaryllis Twists Vase reinterprets the twisting buds and elegant form of the long-retired Ephraim Pottery Perennial Vase. These buds represent an about-to-bloom amaryllis, the beloved flower that brightens our homes during long, monochromatic winters. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.
  • This Grueby-inspired vase offers classic Arts and Crafts design with all the warmth, comfort, and companionship of an old friend. Rolled under rim, elongated buds, and sculpting on five sides make this a unique variation on a timeless theme. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.
  • The Athena Vase reinterprets one of our early pieces, the Greek Vase, on a smaller scale. A traditional Arts and Crafts leaf, bud, and teardrop motif circles around a timeless classical form, creating a pleasing symmetry. This piece is named for Athena, Greek goddess of inspiration and the arts. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.
  • Sometimes the world’s smallest creatures deserve the most careful attention. Three little bees crown the rim of this sweet cabinet vase and invite you to notice their intricate sculpting and unique glaze application. Notice the bees’ delicate wings, the bees’ patterned bodies, the bees’ important role in the ecosystem as pollinators. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.
  • A pair of ponderosa pines reach above misty mountain ridges, stretching their boughs into the big clear sky. Tiny and sublime, the Big Sky Cabinet Vase is a wonderful addition to our Rhythm Line collection. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.
  • Before leaves broaden and fruit forms, trees greet spring with their beautiful blooming branches. This vase celebrates the dramatic beauty of a single blooming branch, which rests on the shoulder of a subtle and elegant, architectural vase.

    Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.

  • The edges of roadways, vacant lots, and other barren and rocky places are inhospitable to all but the toughest of plants. Where others may see weeds, we see wildflowers. The creamy white of Queen Anne's Lace plays off the cool blue of chicory, dainty petals mixing with woody stalks and spiky leaves. This piece celebrates the resilient kind of beauty that thrives despite long odds. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.
  • A simple bowing pine branch bends at the rim of this sweet vase. The flowing lines of the hand-sculpted pine branch, pine cone, and pine needles drape across the form with a sense of graceful movement, while the teardrop-shaped cutout adds an element of whimsical discovery. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.
  • The idea for this piece came about as a result of the Fan-Built Piece experience that we held on Facebook in the spring of 2014. The form that was chosen for the Reserve Edition Hollyhock Vase here lends itself to an architectural interpretation. This piece has a strong, solid feel and clean lines. The natural world makes an appearance in the form of our favorite inquisitive bird and the earthy tones of the glaze. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.
  • The Calla Lily, with its clean, gently curved lines, is wonderfully perfect in and of itself. Here, this symbol of purity, love, and transition bends gracefully across the vessel, gently going with the flow and celebrating life. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.
  • The Clarity Vase distills a large dose of classic Arts & Crafts style into a refined, small vase. Inspired by the historic innovators at Grueby Faience Pottery in the late 19th Century, this piece repeats the timeless leaf-and-bud motif on an exquisite hand-thrown form. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.
  • A dynamic piece, the Craftsman Pine Bowl, marries Arts & Crafts-style metalwork and architecture with softer elements. The hammered texture and corbels on the shoulder anchor this round form, its hand-sculpted pine cones and needles, and its rich crackle glaze. This piece pairs nicely with the Craftsman Poppy Vase from our 2014 Studio Collection. Handmade to order. Please allow up to four weeks for production and delivery.

Since 1996, Ephraim art pottery vases have been the American decorative arts standard. Our aesthetic celebrates the hand of the maker. Each is wheel-thrown, hand-sculpted, and finished with our signature in-house designed glazes. As a result, the artist is reflected in each individually-crafted vase.

Our nature-inspired art pottery vases bring the outdoors inside your home. They incorporate botanical themes such as poppies, roses, irises, violets, pine needles, pine cones, oak leaves, acorns, and ginkgo leaves. We also enjoy representing animals, such as bats, ravens, cardinals, finches, foxes, bears, mice, cats, rabbits, and other fauna, into our vases. 

Are you looking for a vase that fits into a specific spot in your home? We have miniature, small, seasonal-themed, centerpiece, and tall vases, and lidded jars. Ephraim Pottery vases range from two inches tall to 15 inches tall.

Perhaps you are searching for a certain color vase to accentuate your home’s other decorative elements. Our vases come in a range of earthy colors, from greens to olives, blues and teals, and yellows and bronze. These colors can perfectly complement classic decor’s jewel tones and pick up tones in traditional plant-dyed Persian rugs. In addition, our pottery vases’ earthy colors work well as a fresh, interesting conversation piece in minimalist and modern decorative schemes.
