Just Art Pottery New Arrivals

If you’ve not seen the new arrivals at Just Art Pottery, now’s the time. There are several Ephraim Faience Pottery pieces we’ve added, along with a few distinctive Rookwood Pottery pieces.

Fans of the rich blues found in some Rookwood Pottery pieces will definitely appreciate the Rookwood Pottery 1927 vase. It’s in mint condition and has a geometric design that provides texture and contrast. It’s marked with the Rookwood logo, shape mark and date. It measures 5 3/4” in height and 2 3/4” wide.

One of the most beautiful colors used in any art pottery is purple. The Rookwood Pottery 1928 vase has the characteristics of what made this pottery company so popular – attention to detail, expert shading and contrasting and creative design efforts. This 7” tall vase is in mint condition and is everything Rookwood fans have come to know and love. Definitely worth a collector’s consideration!

There’s also a dramatic Chicago Crucible Pottery Twist Vase that’s recently been added. The darker glazes add a certain dramatic elegance and the masterful shaping efforts hit the mark. What begins as a square opening soon is a flowing design, complete with a wider base. The matte glazing effort is just right on this sophisticated design.

Not surprisingly, many of the Ephraim Faience Pottery pieces sold quickly, but there remain several exceptional selections, including the Wood Violet vase. The almost-iridescent glazing sets this beauty apart. Shades of green and purple come together in such a way that’s not often seen in art pottery. This experimental vase is in mint condition and is a must-have for Ephraim Faience collectors. It measures 4” tall and is 6 1/2” wide. It’s marked with the logo and stamped “Mary Pratt”.

Finally, we take a look at the Ephraim Faience Pottery Climbing Bear Candle Holder. Again, this is a striking use of colors and glazing efforts that provides that dramatic look this pottery company is so well known for. It too is in mint condition and presents with a traditional cone shape. It is yet another wonderful addition to any collection.

These are but a few of the new arrivals available now. Be sure to check often, too, since we add to our inventory weekly.

Just Art Pottery New Arrivals

It’s that time of the year again where it seems all any of us do is scramble to make every moment count during the holidays.  One of the best things about this time of year is decorating.  Christmas trees, the festive dinnerware and of course, the ribbons, bells and mistletoe – it’s all part of the presentation.  That said, part of my efforts include bringing some of my most prized art pottery pieces down from the top shelves and putting them front and center.  I incorporate some of my cherished George Ohr pottery pieces into my mantelpiece that’s draped with pine and tiny white lights.   Of course, McCoy Pottery is where it all began for me; my kitchen is home to those whimsical pieces I’m so drawn to.
