   This form is influenced by pottery forms made during the Chinese Han dynasty.  The glaze is a result of using the Patina Green glaze inside the wood kiln where a higher concentration of salt was added to the kiln during the end of the firing.  The result is a bleached version of the typical darker blue-green finish.  Truly a one-of-a-kind piece!  Measuring 7”w. x 12.25”h.
Please note: What appear to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting.

   The Patina Green Glaze was first developed by Ben III, in the early 1990’s while in college at East Carolina, as a glossy forest green made from a copper pigment.  When testing the glaze in the wood kilns back home at the family pottery, the results were strikingly different with many variations of color and surface.  If fired in the wood kiln with no salt added to the firing, the color will be a darker green with small crystals on the surface.  If finished in a wood and salt firing, the salt will brighten the color and create more blue-green hues with random small crystals on the surface.

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