The Turquoise Matte glaze was created to produce a smooth, “soft” surface on the pots that would be a change from the glossy finishes typical in the Owen family of glazes. From looking at surfaces created by Chinese Blue and Patina Green, Ben III wanted to add to the green glazes he makes but with the option of a weathered copper surface. The ivy green to sage pigment is made from copper oxide and titanium oxide and the matte finish is created from the use of magnesium and calcium in the glaze. Carbon present during the firing process will also affect the range of color in the green.
