The Gourd Vase is a classic shape that reflects an organic approach to form. Ben III often discovers inspiration for his art from nature while reflecting on his grandfather’s advice of, “Keep it simple.”

Ben Owen III’s Pomegranate/Purple Haze glazes are the result of ventures in layering various proprietary copper glazes. This layering technique creates exquisite effects with an intentionally wide range of variations from piece to piece. From rich, dark reds to lighter berry-reds and all the way to vibrant blues and purples, the Pomegranate/Purple Haze glaze is truly an artistic approach to glaze formation. A treat to see with each kiln firing!
