    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.

    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.

    Sometimes the world’s smallest creatures deserve the most careful notice. Notice the bee’s delicate wings; notice the bee’s patterned body; notice the bee’s important pollinating role in the ecosystem. Here a plump honey bee perches near the rim of a small, rippled form. A honey-like glossy amber glaze spills over a soft yellow matte glaze, inviting you to admire the little bee as it tends its honey.   Handmade to order. No two pieces of the same design look exactly alike, that’s part of the magic of handmade ceramics.
