   The perfect Flower Vase as a beautiful backdrop for a fresh or dried floral arrangement.  The natural tones are a result of a mix of iron and mica in the clay.  The Cobalt glaze was applied to the piece prior to loading the kiln and the Ash glaze provides the fluid movement for beautiful glaze drips.
   The Cobalt and Ash glazes blended with the iron and mica in the clay create a completely individualistic finish.  The brilliant blue against the golden tones accents the beautiful drips along the contour of this vase. Dishwasher-safe for cleaning after use.  Measuring 7.5"w x 12"h.
Please Note: What appear to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting.

Multi-Layer Glaze
   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 covering with orange to silver developing from the overlapping colors. Each pot is unique.  

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