   This stunning Sung Jar in Bleached Mirror Black will accent any home, office, or hallway.  What a delight!  When salt is introduced to the kiln atmosphere, a bleaching effect results in a lighter khaki to rust.  The contrast in color is unique and lovely.  Measuring 15.5”w x 26.5“h.
Please Note: What appear to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting.

   The Mirror Black Glaze was first formulated by Ben Owen Sr. while working with Jacques and Juliana Busbee at Jugtown Pottery and continued to be used at Ben Owen Pottery by all three Bens.  Mirror Black includes a mixture of iron, manganese, and cobalt as a pigment.  Depending on the firing process, this glaze can reveal many variations from solid black to black with rust to more khaki tones.  This glaze is fired in a reduction or wood-firing process.  In a gas reduction kiln, the color will remain solid black or break to rust tones on the rim or edges of carvings.  The wood firing will change to glaze to a Teadust or Frogskin color due to the ashes from the firing process bleaching or overlapping the applied black glaze.

This piece is hand-signed by Ben Owen III with the year made (2018).
