   The Tang Vase is a classic form made by Ben Owen III.  The two-handled jar has been a signature Owen family shape influenced by early Asian forms made during the Chinese Tang Dynasty.  Measuring 5.75"w x 8.5”h.
Please Note: What appear to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting.

   The Cobalt Blue glaze has been used by the Owen family for over four generations.  Early salt glaze wares made in the late 1800s were decorated with a cobalt blue glaze over the grey salt finish.  Over the past 50 years, Ben Owen Pottery has made some cobalt-glazed pieces using a uniform coating of the glaze on the surface of the pots.  Today, Ben uses a glaze that is similar to the older, original glaze.  This newer Cobalt Blue is glossy and reveals a depth to the finish.  Sometimes, the Cobalt Blue is used to accentuate pieces that are fired in the wood kiln.  These are called multi-layered glazes.

This piece is hand-signed by Ben Owen III with the year made (2022).
