   A wheel-thrown and combed vase in stoneware clay.  Multiple layers of iron and cobalt glazes.  Overlapping ash glaze fired in a single chamber wood kiln for over 70 hours.  A perfect vase for fresh or dried flowers.  This piece displays beautifully in a grouping.  Measuring 6.5"w x 13.25"h. 
Please Note: What appear to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting.

  The earth tone is influenced by the amount of iron in the clay and wood ash.  The range of color is dependent on the atmosphere of the firing in the kiln.  During the early stages of firing, at 1600°F, we purposely control the furnace to burn inefficiently creating carbon inside the kiln.  The reaction of carbon, over a period of several hours, with the iron in the clay will create warm tones in the glaze and iridescent or opalescent qualities to the surface.  The presence of wood ash coming in contact with the glaze accentuates the glaze with flashes of apple green and yellow tones to deeper brown shades on areas of the pot.  

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