This Stardust Green matte microcrystalline finish includes the copper pigment and results in a truly unique effect. The small crystals are developed by slow-cooling the kiln. This Gourd Vase in Stardust Green is fully functional and works well for use with fresh or dried flowers. With a soft satin feel and attractive coloration, this is sure to become a conversation piece in the home or a treasured gift for years to come.
The gourd design is a result of Ben’s influence from shapes and forms in nature. With an organic, from-the-Earth feel, this Gourd Vase fuses tradition with modernity. This design was also made by Ben’s grandfather. The curvature of the vase provides a lovely accent for the contemporary matte micro-crystal growth. Measuring 5.75”h x 3.75”w & 1” aperture.
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!
