This contoured bowl includes a unique finish with cobalt and copper pigments and reveals many of the great qualities of the glaze surface. The small crystals are developed by slow cooling the kiln. Fully functional for any food or flower arrangement. Measuring 3.5”H x 8.5”dia.

Ben Owen Pottery developed the Micro-Crystal Glazes over several years, manipulating materials with the potential to create unique surfaces and patterns that can be seen in nature.  Some outcomes resemble lichen on stone or mold growth on wood.  Other Micro-Crystal Glazes render scenes similar to blue jellyfish floating in still blue waters, a view of a collection of cells through a microscope, or the majestic nebular formations telescopic images portray.  To achieve this rare find, the kiln temperature is meticulously controlled as it rises AND as it falls, to encourage micro-crystal growth at specific temperatures and render this stunning final product. The glaze is applied by carefully airbrushing multiple layers of complementary glazes.  The presence of titanium- and zinc-rich ingredients promotes crystal development, while cobalt tints the crystals blue. Sometimes, iron oxide is used for the background glaze and creates a sky blue/green effect. We hope you enjoy this one-of-a-kind glaze!
