Morganite Cremation Urn For Ashes - Medium
The Morganite Cremation Urns for Ashes have a smooth and spherical shape, which symbolises wholeness, completion and karma. It may remind you of the strawberry moon, how its beauty shines and leaves the viewer in awe of such beauty.
The strawberry moon also relates to good fortune, optimism and generosity, while also giving you a better understanding of your private and family life. This could link to the changes that have happened within your family during this difficult time, but as the path gets lighter you begin to seek optimism and positivity to what the future holds.
This cremation urn for ashes has a soft blush pink background with pearly white crystal finishes, making it appear somewhat similar to a cherry blossom tree. This is symbolic of new beginnings and revival.
Cherry blossoms have a short duration span, it teaches us that we must value each moment with our friends and family or we will miss those beautiful moments in the blink of an eye. These beautiful crystalline glaze urns have 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 and expand, which is usually around 1050 - 1150°C. The crystals take around 3-5 hours to grow and create unique patterns.
When the crystals cool down, they obtain their final appearance and will not change. The modifications of the appearance of the crystals are a result of the specific chemical compositions of the glaze.
The crystal formers are Zinc Oxide and Silica which combine to create Zinc Silicate. The shape of the crystals formed on cremation urn also differ depending on the various temperatures in the environment.
A special ring must be made for each piece as well as a plate to catch the glaze that runs off, in order to protect the shelves of the kiln. This must then be removed and the bottom is grinded to make it smooth to the touch.
Ultimately, each crystalline piece is delicately and expertly handcrafted, creating unique and original designs which are one of a kind and impossible to replicate. As the pieces are created on a pottery wheel, the size and measurements won’t be exact.
This ceramic urn has a beautiful final touch as the lid is manually trimmed with a place to set and light a small remembrance candle, the perfect token to commemorate the life of a loved one.
