Each pot is a sketch for the next...you just have to grab that lump of clay and start again on the wheel.
— Ben Owen III

BEN OWEN III is actively involved in every stage of the process leading to the completion of your one-of-a-kind pottery piece. We’ve created a few short videos (below) to share Ben’s enthusiasm for finding and shaping clay; developing glazes and decorating pots; and loading and firing kilns full of ceramic treasures. You can watch a video detailing Ben’s background as a potter by clicking here or visiting the History page.
