Han Vase in Chinese Blue-Red 12.5"h

350.00

This form is is influenced by pottery forms made during the Chinese Han dynasty. The copper glaze is a blend of materials that will react to the smoke and flame from the firing process. Truly a one-of-a-kind piece. No two develop the color pattern in the same way. Measuring 12.5H” x 7.5W” x 7.5”L.

The Chinese Blue Glaze is sought by collectors because of the variety of hues and variations of finish from each firing. No two pieces come out exactly alike. Although many of the forms are similar to Chinese Red pieces, there are some shapes made specifically for this glaze. The color is achieved from several mixtures of copper in a glaze and fired to 2250°F. This glaze was first developed at Jugtown Pottery in the 1930s. After Jacques Busbee’s death, his wife Juliana requested that the glaze not be produced. From different accounts and research, the recipe for the glaze was lost.
