Leah Purisch from Ephraim Pottery provides some images and background info:

"At Ephraim Pottery we strive to be the modern incarnation of the traditional collaborative artisan guild. We are guided by our hands, heads, and hearts. Though our roots are in the American Arts and Crafts revival we work together as artists to create timeless art work that is classically inspired by our natural surroundings, yet thoroughly modern. We value the present and future as much as the past and hope that our customers join us in exploration as we sculpt our spot in the American artistic heritage.

EFP2015Process

Process:
All of our pieces are hand thrown and sculpted one-at-a time. We do not use moulds or casts.  Our new Studio Collection is the culmination of over 6 months of ongoing design development and refinement. 

Studio Collection 2015:
We are debuting the collection at the Arts and Crafts Chicago show in Oak Park, IL on May 16-17. Pieces will be available on our website Friday, May 15th.

Longevity Lantern:
Ephraim artist PK McVicker commemorates his 10 years at the studio with this innovative lantern design. Influenced by his childhood in the Philippines and the West coast of the US, PK explores his fondness for the elegant lines of Pacific Rim pottery with this Japanese-inspired, three piece lantern. An impressive hand-thrown flared lid shelters a round form with windows. A gentle gingko leaf rests, silhouetted on both sides in the window and together the form and lid rest on a unique three-footed base.
11 1/4 "H x 9 1/2"W, two sided, accommodates a tea light.

Drifter Vase:
Drifting butterflies land in perfect symmetry on the shoulder of this classically shaped vase. Cutout negative space and softly sprayed glazing techniques accentuate the delicate sculpting on this form.
10"H x 5 1/4"W, three sided."

Thanks for sharing the images and info, Leah! Be sure to visit the Ephraim Pottery website on May 15, 2015 to see (and order) the new pieces from the Studio Collection.
