 You can find the traditional forms and shapes of Ben Owen Sr. pottery wares in The Tableware Collection at Ben Owen lll Pottery.  This line highlights shapes and forms made in a traditional Owen style of the early 1900’s folk pottery of North Carolina as well as influences from Asia.  This traditional collection has been continued by several potters who have worked at Ben Owen Pottery since the 1960’s.  The current line is made by potter Elizabeth McAdams, who works as a studio assistant and retail manager for Ben Owen Pottery.  

The Nebular Purple glaze is a newer micro-crystal glaze development from Ben Owen III.  The small purple crystals are formed along the surface of the clay, within the glaze, during the cooling process of the wood kiln firing.  An amazing feat of glaze chemistry!  Using Ben’s cobalt glaze in the wood kiln creates an array of blue tones in the background glaze to contrast the lavender/light purple micro-crystals.  

Works are stamped with the Ben Owen Pottery stamp and initialed with EM.
