Ben Owen
Graduated 1993

Ben Owen III is a potter from Seagrove, North Carolina. His forefathers came to NC from England as early as the late 1700s to ply their craft and furnish storage jars and other utilitarian wares to early settlers. Like his grandfather, Ben III’s pottery reflects a foundation in traditional designs alongside Asian influences.
