Ephraim Faience Pottery recently opened a new gallery in Cambria’s West Village. Ephraim Faience, which creates limited edition art pottery and tile, says it is the leading Arts and Crafts Revival pottery in the United States. The new gallery at 728 Main St. is the second retail store for the Wisconsin-based company; the first is attached to the company studio in Lake Mills, Wisc.
Ephraim Pottery West carries the studio’s full line of pottery and tile. The pottery is displayed on antique and reproduction Arts and Crafts furniture from Voorhees Craftsman of Rohnert Park and Pasadena. Woven items including table rounds, runners, and purses by Archive Edition Textiles of Hawthorne enhance the gallery’s feeling.
Local artists working in complementary styles will be invited to show their work at the gallery. Landscape paintings by California artist Gordon Luce are currently featured.
“The opening of our new gallery in Cambria has been so well-received!,” said Shari Little, manager of Ephraim Pottery West. “The positive comments on how incredibly beautiful the pottery and furnishings are — as well as the look and feel of the store —have been overwhelming. It is a true pleasure to be surrounded by such amazing artistry in such an awe-inspiring location as Cambria.”
Ephraim Pottery West is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through the summer (but closed on holidays). For more, go to ephraimpottery.com. — Staff
