Cobalt Pet Ashes Urn
SKU: CUC 017
This urn has been beautifully handcrafted by our artisans to appear as deeply rounded in shape, symbolising the respect and wholeness that you had for your loved one. The various shades of deep royal blues and light airy blues create an underwater effect, making it a suitable urn for a loved one who enjoyed being in the water. The rustic lid adds texture and contrast between the smooth and glistening body of the urn to the top of the urn.
This urn is small enough to hold in your hand in times of remembrance. With its cool to the touch material, it acts as a grounding technique in times of thought and hardships. The urn would also be a good match to a house with modern decor.
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.
