The Turquoise Crystalline glaze from Ben Owen Pottery was developed over several years by manipulating glaze materials and tweaking the crucial cooling process used during the kiln firings. This brilliant blue color is made from a combination of copper and cobalt. Examples of blues like this have inspired Ben III from Middle Eastern pottery and the semi-precious stone, Lapis lazuli. A range of colors is achieved through special application and firing techniques. The crystals are formed within the glaze along the surface of the vase during the cooling process of a kiln firing. Due to the unique chemical properties during crystal formation, no two crystals are alike. This glaze lends itself to creating completely individualized pieces.
This piece is hand-signed by Ben Owen III with the year made (2022).
