For sale is a piece of pottery from The Great Barrington Pottery. Richard Bennett's Pottery merges East and West. Inspired by the Sung Dynasty, often called the Kingdom of Beauty, the pottery is shaped from Georgian red clay and glazed with Japanese feldspar and rice straw ash. It is then fired in a traditional woodburning kiln. The 7,000 brick kiln at the Great Barrington Pottery, built brick by brick by Richard Bennett and his Japanese master, was the first authentic Japanese woodburning kiln built in the United States. This piece measures 8" tall and is 5" across. It has no chips or cracks. It has a few pops in the glaze and uniform crazing from age.
