Axinite Pet Ashes Urn

SKU: CUC 010 P


The Axinite Cremation Urn has been beautifully handcrafted to appear round in shape, symbolising wholeness. The urn’s design has a dripping effect at the top of the urn that disperses into spherical randomly scattered shapes that surround the body of the urn, with speckled drips trailing across the background in the negative space. 

The burnt orange colours run through every aspect of this urn. Burnt orange colours simulate and evoke feelings towards the autumn season. Linking it to the feeling of warmth and comfort. This urn might be a good choice for a loved one who had a preferred season of autumn and enjoyed this time of year. The muted orange colours can be a sense of joy, radiating that your loved one was joyful in life. This urn is small enough to hold in your hand 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. 

This 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.
