   This Altered Bowl reveals many of the great qualities of this glaze surface on a medium profile bowl.  Pulling the clay and altering the natural form created by wheel-turning, this alteration provides both a physical and visual accent to the overall aesthetic of the bowl.  Fully functional, this bowl is appropriate for food use and is dishwasher- and microwave-safe.  Measuring 12”l x 8.25"w x 5.25”h.
Please Note: What appear to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting.

   The Cabernet Glaze is a variation of the Chinese Blue Glaze but made with only one type of copper to achieve this pigment.  The influences from making the Cabernet, or Copper Red, glazes originated from the Ming Dynasty type of pottery in China, in the 12th century, A.D.  The red color is created by introducing carbon or depriving the atmosphere of oxygen early on in the firing process.  Exposure to the smoky atmosphere converts the copper glaze from what would be a typical green glaze, to a wine-red color.

This piece is hand-signed by Ben Owen III with the year made (2024).
