Amethyst Ashes Keepsake

SKU: CUC 005 K

£149

The Amethyst Mini Urn has been crafted into a half-sphere shape, almost resembling a half-moon, associated with renewal and a sense of hope. The top of this keepsake is adorned with a beautiful crystal handle. The soft purple of the crystal complements the intense royal blues of this urn.

The bright and eye-capturing strong blue tones on this small urn radiate an aura of intelligence and respect. The darkened areas of blue on the mini urn give it a marble effect, creating contrast between the various shades and patterns intertwined into the mini urn. The marble effect gives the urn depth instead of looking flat in texture. Due to this mini urn being small in size, the urn can be held close to you in times of remembrance. 

These 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, which is usually around 1050 - 1150^C. The crystals take around 3-5 hours to grow. 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. 

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. 

Ultimately, each crystalline piece is delicately 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.
