|VASE (c. 2000), BY BEN OWEN III|
ACQUIRED FROM THE GIFT SHOP OF THE NORTH CAROLINA MUSEUM OF HISTORY, RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA, JULY 2000
FIRED AND GLAZED CERAMICS, SIGNATURE ENGRAVED ON THE BASE BY THE ARTIST
My mom gave me a Ben Owen III vase for Christmas 1999. Unfortunately, the vase got involved in a minor skirmish with another work of art and was damaged. I was able to repair the damage, but when I told my mom about it, she offered to acquire the vase back from me. In its place, I acquired this vase.
This vase has been fired with a black glaze all over, except for a pair of thin rings surrounding the top of the vase. This is a very nice example of Ben's work.
