Serving bowls have been a part of the home setting for thousands of years. Offering guests, family, or friends a treat or special food dish has been a long-standing tradition across many cultures that continues today. The ribbed lines along the body of this vase are one of Ben’s newer designs. The vase is thrown on the wheel and then later altered with 5 vertical ribs created by pressing into the clay with his fingers. A perfect gift for that hard-to-shop-for friend or family member. Measuring 11" diameter. 4.25" height.
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!
