Very unusual large stoneware pottery vase with texturing   and has 3 frog in relief climbing up the sides.  In addition is a tree stump on one side and the other side has a round seal to mark that it is was made with Mount Saint Helen's Ash Glaze.  At first glance I thought the body of the vase was depicting a tree trunks. However on closer inspection and critical thought it can be a tree trunk.  It is  muddy ground and there is a small tree stump.   In any event it is a very interesting earthy piece of artistic pottery.    There are several markings on the bottom.   In script is written M. Madsen.  Then there is a windmill mark which has the name of Elaine W. R or Elaine WA under that.   It is dated 1987.     So far I have not been able to find out any information on the artist or potter.     This vase is heavy, weighing 5 pounds and is 11" tall. 

It is in excellent condition.
