Egg Vase in Chinese Red 6.5"h

85.00

This Egg Vase in Chinese Red is made from local earthenware clay with multiple layers of the red glaze applied to the surface. The thicker application of the glaze reveals a rich color and texture. The Chinese Red glaze is considered a signature glaze of the Owen family dating back to Ben III’s father.
The classic egg-shaped vase that has been made for three generations of Ben’s family. With an elegant understatement, the Egg Vase is one of the most popular forms that Ben Owen III enjoys creating. Measuring 6.5”h x 4” & 1” aperture. Please note: What appears to be white spots on the surface are reflections from photo lighting.

Chinese Red has become one of Ben III’s signature glazes over the past 35 years. Ben’s father, Ben Wade Owen Jr., developed the glaze after many customers requested a red finish. Chinese Red was not produced by Ben’s grandfather, Ben Owen Sr., although many of the forms that he studied early-on in his career were shapes from China that included a red finish. The red glaze is reminiscent of the old Chinese Red overglazes used in the 16th century and has worked well with Ben III’s simple Asian translations.  The red glazed pottery cannot be used for food or liquid due to the limitation of firing temperature. If using for flowers, place a plastic cylinder or bowl inside the vessel to hold water.

* Note special care instruction labels on each red pot.
