Ribbed Bowl in Chinese Red 12.5"dia.

225.00

The ribbed bowl is one of Ben’s newer designs that is thrown on the wheel and later altered with 5 vertical ribs created by pressing into the clay with his fingers. The clay is allowed to dry about an hour, or depending on the weather, and then alter the form. A great bowl for decorating or accenting with a splash of the vibrant color. For decorative use only. Measuring 5”h x 12.5” x 12.5”.

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.
