Ephraim Faience Pottery was founded in rural Wisconsin by Kevin Hicks and Scott Draves in 1996. Both were talented artists that had grown increasingly dissatisfied with working for commercial pottery companies due to the absence of creativity that the work entailed. They envisioned creating works of a more aesthetic nature and when they created Ephraim Faience Pottery that dream was realized. The company quickly grew and expanded to add many more gifted artists.
The artists at the Ephraim Faience Pottery studio create art pottery inspired by the natural beauty of their rural Wisconsin surroundings. The artists take part in all areas of design and production including throwing, sculpting, glazing, decorating, and firing by hand. All pieces of Ephraim Faience pottery are created by hand, from the beginning of the process to the very end.
This lovely vase, introduced in 2001, is called the "Lily Pond" pattern. It measures 2" in height 6 1/2" across and carries their leaf green glaze, with two delicate floral buds in satin yellow glaze, both matt finishes. The vase is stamped with the Ephraim logo indicating 2003 and the potter "Laura Klein". The pottery is not for water use, unless with a glass liner. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
