The Dogwood Vase is great for a display of flowers on a table or a mantle. It is both decorative and fully functional.
The Midnight Blue Microcrystalline glaze is one of the newer glazes Ben has developed in his Micro-Crystal series. These micro-crystals are formed within the glaze along the surface of the vase during the cooling process of a kiln firing. Due to the unique chemical properties during micro-crystal formation, no two crystals are alike. This glaze lends itself to creating completely individualized pieces.
Mesmerizing, the lighter blue hues of cobalt micro-crystals appear to float over the rich deep blue background as though they are moon jellies in the deep ocean. Sure to be a conversation piece in the home or office. Measuring 9”h x 5” x 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!
