Vetur Cremation Urn for Ashes
SKU: CUU 046
The Vetur Cremation Urn for Ashes takes inspiration from the Nordic word for winter, with a restrained ivory white theme and Nordic inspired engravings at the neck of the urn.
The neutral white makes this urn fit in perfectly with modern furniture, it isn't overbearing but can still be presented as a standout piece as the focal point of a display dedicated to your beloved.
This ceramic cremation urn has a fine glaze making it ever so slightly reflective, when matched with a candle of similar colour, it is sure to spread warmth throughout your living room.
The Raku firing 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.
This can be done using materials that would readily catch fire, such as sawdust or paper, creating a ‘reduction’ atmosphere which consumes the oxygen available, creating carbon monoxide. The carbon monoxide draws out oxygen from the clay and glaze, intensifying the colours and textures. This creates orange, red, copper, and gold tones.
The pottery can also be cooled down via a ‘oxidation’ atmosphere by submerging the piece into cool water. The oxygen in the water reacts with the metals in the clay and glaze to create a finish which often consists of blue and green tones. Ultimately, a myriad of colours are created within the glaze, and the extreme change in temperatures create a crackled look.
