Ben Owen III’s Pomegranate/Purple Haze glaze is developed by layering various proprietary copper glazes. This layering technique creates exquisite effects with a wide range of variations from piece to piece. A treat to see with each kiln firing! Fully functional, vessels glazed in Pomegranate provide a spectacular backdrop for any floral arrangement. With an ethereal quality and resembling an artistic interpretation of a purple galaxy, this is truly a unique approach to glaze formation.
This piece is hand-signed by Ben Owen III with the year made (2023).
