   This Edo Jar is a stunning example of Ben III's multi-layered glaze effects.  The texture on the surface is created by using a bandsaw blade typically used in woodworking.  While the piece is “leather hard”, the saw blade cuts into the clay to reveal a linear design.  Measuring 7.5”w x 12.75"h.
Please Note: What appear to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting. 

MultiLayer Glazes
   While Ben III was in college in the 1990s, he was introduced to a spraying technique with an air-driven spray gun that some potters use to build up layers of glazes on the clay surface.  With some experimenting, he was able to create a variety of finishes using accents of three or four different colors and using an ash glaze as a top coat to blend or bleach the underlying colors.  Some finishes are a base of iron yellow with cobalt blue or copper green covered with orange to silver developing from the overlapping colors. Each pot is unique.  As a similar process to Natural Ash Glazes, Ben III frequently places these finishes in the wood kiln to accentuate the colors as well.

This piece is hand-signed by Ben Owen III with the year made (2022).
