Charles Darwin coined the term “living fossil” to describe ancient animal and plant species— like the iconic ginkgo—that have changed little over the millennia. For our Living Fossil Vase, Ephraim artists developed a new glaze combination to highlight the three hand-sculpted ginkgo leaves meeting the rim of a low, wide form. Orange and yellow leaves stand out against a rich blue-green crystalline glaze with a black crackle finish.
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.
