Three sleepy bats hang from twisting tree branch handles on this unique vase. Ephraim artists first apply and then sculpt the branches on the hand-thrown vase, then our sculptors form the hanging bats—three individual sculptures in their own right—and attach them to the vase. Because of all the heavy relief this vase takes up to a week of slow drying time. Ephraim glazers use two glaze firings to achieve moody and dramatic effects that enhance the flowing form and intricately rendered bat sculptural elements of this one-of-a-kind conversation piece.
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.
