BEN OWEN III

For ceramic artist Ben Owen III, pottery has been a way of life in his family for six generations. Much of their philosophy, simplicity of form and unusual glazes has been strongly influenced by Japanese, Chinese and Korean pottery. Ben works from his North Carolina studio, gallery and family museum.
