The Celadon Amber Glaze features a transparent finish that has been based on the blue and green celadons of Asia. It is made from a mixture of feldspathic rock, clay, and, flint rock with the addition of small amounts of Yellow Ochre as a pigment. Ben III's experimentation with celadons began with research in college and further study in China and Japan.
This finish is excellent for revealing carved designs on the surface while showing the underlying clay. The Celadon Amber Glaze relates to the color of honey and the range of tones is reliant on the type of clay, the amount of yellow ochre which has the presence of iron oxide, and, the atmosphere in the kiln to create the exact environment for the color to develop.
This piece is hand-signed by Ben Owen III with year made (2002), and, is part of our "Pots From the Past" release.
