1) Selenite Ashes Keepsake Urn
The Selenite Ashes Keepsake Urn is part of our crystalline glaze collection, each urn is named after a crystal or gem which it most represents in colour and likeness.
This small urn is made of ceramic material which has been formed on a potter's wheel and fired in an electric kiln at very high temperatures of around 1280^C for several hours.
Once a liquid matrix is formed from the molten glaze, the kiln is then cooled to the temperature at which the crystals will grow, which is usually around 1050 - 1150^C. When the crystals cool down, they obtain their final appearance.
The selenite stone has for long been known as a goddess stone and said to bring harmony, protection and soul healing.
This urn for ashes also has an Amethyst crystal on its lid which promotes peaceful and calming energy, getting rid of any negative energy.
2) Fuchsite Pet Ashes Urn

Using the saggar firing technique each clay urn is coated and wrapped in raw materials such as copper wire, steel wool, ferns, sugar, salt, and aluminium foil before firing to 1100°C.
As the materials burn away, they imprint themselves onto the surface into the surface of the clay, causing each urn to be unique and one of a kind.
The designs consist of black, brown and beige hues creating an autumn like atmosphere.
4) Pampas Ashes Keepsake Urn
Part of our Raku collection, the Pampas Ashes Keepsake Urn is made of ceramic material and is crafted using the Raku firing technique.
This technique consists of glazed ceramics which undergo a quick firing process at around 1000^C.
The pottery is then removed from the kiln whilst they are still glowing red hot to be placed in a material that would cool the pieces rapidly.
