    During the 1920s, Ben’s grandfather, Ben Owen Sr., was a potter at Jugtown Pottery.  While there, Jacque Busbee did extensive research to create many of the colors for the pottery.  The Dogwood White glaze was inspired by Chinese and Japanese white finishes for pottery with a thick coating that resembles icing on a cake.  In 1928, the Busbees of Jugtown entered a vase, made by Ben Owen, in the Dogwood festival with this white glaze.  The vase was awarded best in the show and from that time forward, the vase was called the Dogwood Vase and the glaze named Dogwood White.  This glaze works well for weddings and flower displays.

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