Egg Vase in Patina Green 13"h

350.00

A classic egg shaped vase made for three generations of Ben’s family with a unique finish of patina green. It is a blend of copper glaze and natural ash accumulation from the wood firing process. Micro-crystals have formed on the surface of the piece during the slow cooling of the kiln. Measuring 13”h x 7” x 7”.

The Patina Green Glaze was first developed by Ben III, in the early 1990’s while in college at East Carolina, as a glossy forest green made from a copper pigment. When testing the glaze in the wood kilns back home at the family pottery, the results were strikingly different with many variations of color and surface. If fired in the wood kiln with no salt added to the firing, the color will be a darker green with small crystals on the surface. If finished in a wood and salt firing, the salt will brighten the color and create more blue-green hues with random small crystals on the surface.
