Driftwood Cremation Urn for Ashes
SKU: CUU 011
This urn has been elegantly handcrafted through the saggar firing technique to produce beautiful natural muted tones resembling stone, shell, and pebble colours.
Placed upon the lid of this urn is a piece of driftwood which has been hand selected to couple with these blended colours which has a washed feel to them, eluding a sea palette feel to them. Not only does the firing process produce these unique markings on the urn which cannot be replicated but no piece of driftwood will ever be the same.
This urn would be perfect for anyone who had loved the waves, perhaps a surfer or a fisherman. Alternatively, this is a beautiful urn which can be added to any home décor due to the neutral colours and calm presence it eludes.
The Saggar firing technique makes use of Iron(III), otherwise known as Ferric Chloride, a compound commonly used in etching copper circuit boards and water treatment. Each clay urn is coated and wrapped in raw materials such as copper wire, steel wool, ferns, sugar, salt, and aluminium foil before firing to 1100°C.
The foil then traps the fumes created as the materials burn away, which imprint themselves into the surface of the clay. Because of this, each piece is completely one of a kind, never to be reproduced. This is, of course, a feature and one of the many beautiful aspects making this Saggar cremation urn a beautiful piece of decor.
