5 Impeccable Saggar Cremation Urns

When it comes to looking for a cremation urn, the options are endless. You may be looking for an urn for ashes that stands out or is highly creative, like your loved one may have been.

In this blog post, we will be showcasing some of our stunning and widely unique saggar cremation urns that we have available. 

What does saggar mean?

Saggar is known as kiln furniture. It is a piece of kiln equipment that appears as a box-like container that encloses ceramic ware whilst it is being fired. Each urn is wrapped in raw materials such as copper wire and aluminium foil, before firing to high temperatures.

The foils trap the fumes that are created and it then imprints itself onto the urn. This is why the patterns on the urns cannot be exactly replicated due to it being a random and natural process. The name is a contraction of the word ‘safeguard’.

Listed below are a few of our creative and eccentric saggar cremation urns for ashes that will surely capture your interest. 

1. Driftwood Cremation Urn For Ashes

With the use of the saggar firing process, the artisan has managed to create beautiful, minimalistic natural muted colours that blend coherently together to create shades of stone, shell and pebble colours. 

The driftwood that has been carefully placed on the lid of the cremation urn has been hand selected to blend with the colours of the urn, so they go harmoniously together. With the firing process creating unique individual marks on each urn that cannot be exactly replicated, the piece of driftwood cannot be the same on each cremation urn too. 

The colours of the urn radiate shades related to the sea, the colours are muted and washed out, linking to the colours of objects found at the beach. This cremation urn could be suited to somebody who liked being at the beach or around the sea, possibly a fisherman. The colours also radiate peace and calmness in your home.
