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.
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.
