   This small bowl is finished with a Ben Owen Pottery proprietary glaze, Cabernet.  The perfect size to use as a ring or jewelry dish.  Fully functional and dishwasher-safe.   Measuring 4.5"dia. x 1"h
Please Note: What appear to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting.

          The Cabernet Glaze is a variation of the Chinese Blue Glaze but made with only one type of copper to achieve this pigment.  The influences from making the Cabernet, or Copper Red, glazes originated from the Ming Dynasty type of pottery in China, in the 12th century, A.D.  The red color is created by introducing carbon or depriving the atmosphere of oxygen early on in the firing process.  Exposure to the smoky atmosphere converts the copper glaze from what would be a typical green glaze, to a wine-red color.

     Juliana Owen (b. 2002), the second daughter of sixth-generation potter Ben Owen III, has been playing in clay since she was very small.  Juliana began selling her work in our retail store when she was around 13 years old.  She also enjoys creating sculptural clay work.

     Juliana graduated from Uwharrie Charter Academy High School in 2021. Earning the title of Miss Central Carolina’s Outstanding Teen in 2018, Juliana’s creativity and aptitude provide a strong platform for her to experience many facets of life.

     In her spare time, Juliana enjoys turning clay at the wheel alongside her father, Ben Owen III. This shared time together provides a space for Juliana to express her artistic nature while sharing her family’s long-standing tradition of creating with clay. Juliana is now a Junior at Boston College and is studying Business and Architecture.
