A great serving bowl or display for flowers on a table. The Dogwood White is a thicker glaze application on the surface giving the look of icing on a cake. The scalloped design on the base is influenced from techniques seen in early Chinese glazed pottery during the Song and Tang Dynasty and early Japanese techniques . The rich color of the red clay compliments the white glaze coating. It is dishwasher and microwave safe. Measuring 3”h x 13” x 13”.

During the 1920’s, Ben’s grandfather, Ben Owen Sr., was a potter at Jugtown Pottery. While there, extensive research was done by Jacque Busbee who created many of the colors for the pottery. The Dogwood White glaze was inspired by Chinese and Japanese white finishes for pottery with a thick coating that resembled icing on a cake. In 1928, the Busbees of Jugtown entered a vase, made by Ben Owen, in the Dogwood festival with this white glaze. The vase was awarded best in show and from that time forward, the vase was called the Dogwood Vase and the glaze named Dogwood White. This glaze works well for weddings and for a display of flowers.
