|This medium green bowl with a fluted, piecrust rim in the desirable frogskin glaze was almost certainly turned by Ben Owen (Senior), master potter at Jugtown Pottery in Moore County, North Carolina for more than 30 years. One of the signature Jugtown glazes, frogskin was used mainly on Chinese-inspired pieces. The olive-green glaze was formed by firing salt over a dark, warm brown Albany slip (an effect also used by the Chinese). The shape of the bowl was inspired by antique Korean vessels researched by Jacques Busbee in the early days of the pottery. The bowl measures 6” wide by 3½” tall. No cracks, chips, hairline fractures, or signs of wear. Jugtown mark (almost exactly the size of a quarter).|
