Pheasant Vase by Amphora
Bohemia, circa 1900
This was one of my first Amphora pieces. Amphora made these with many glazes, a few of them in wildly garish colors. The plant form that serves as his backdrop is both weird and appealing to me. At sixteen inches tall he makes his presence known about the house.
You can see a video of Amphora's monsters and maidens pottery on YouTube by searching for "Amphora Pottery." There is also a Facebook page for collectors and interested souls: www.facebook.com/amphora.pottery.
