10 vases & 3 tiles will only be available until September 8, 2015
Fall marks a season of dramatic change in Wisconsin. As the weather cools, the colors of the farm fields shift, and the kids march back to school, we busy ourselves here at the studio with new fall and winter designs. To accommodate all the new pottery, it’s time to make room on the shelves with our fall retirement of some of our old trusty designs.
When a piece of pottery or a tile is retired, we officially close the edition, record the final numbers produced, and never revisit that particular design again. See a piece that speaks to you? Consider adding it to your collection now because it will soon be history!
Documentation of Retired Work
At Ephraim, we are part of a long tradition of collectible art pottery. Art pottery lends itself to collectibility because historically it tends to have been well marked with “shop marks” and it was naturally limited due to the making process. We have upheld the tradition of marking our pottery and because of the handmade nature of our process the pieces are limited by the capacity of the pottery. We document how many pieces we make and publish these figures on our website in order to support collectibility.
Our art pottery and tiles are limited editions. Designs in our Studio Collection are limited to a maximum of 500 pieces. Our Reserve Editions are created in even more limited numbers. Please follow the link to read more about the documentation of our retired work – Collecting Ephraim Pottery.
