Covered Jar in Lily Pad Green Microcrystalline 8"h

This Lily Pad Green Microcrystalline glaze is one of Ben’s newest developments with copper pigment that provides a nice array of green hues along the contour of the jar. The micro-crystals are formed inside the kiln during the cooling process. Due to the unique chemical properties during micro-crystal formation, no two crystals are alike. This glaze lends itself to creating completely individualized pieces.
Covered jars are both a challenge and reward to create. With a lid that fits just right, this lovely Lily Pad Green Microcrystalline Covered Jar is a nice addition to any home or kitchen. Fully functional as well as decorative, this piece will be appreciated by its recipient and will make a great conversation piece at the table. Measuring 8”h x 5.5” x 5.5”. Please note: What appears to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting.

Ben Owen Pottery developed the Micro-Crystal Glaze series 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 various pigments tint the crystals. We hope you enjoy this one-of-a-kind glaze!
