Our Motion Small Urn for Ashes is a mini urn which is sculpted into a small spherical shape. A circular shape like this is often use to symbolise karma or wholeness due to its full circle.

The deep blue shades of this mini urn for ashes are truly striking. You may be reminded of the night sky or the deep sea when you gaze upon it. Whatever thoughts it may bring to you, they will definitely be emotion-provoking. The particular shade is often a symbol of intelligence, trust, and loyalty, making this the perfect small urn for someone in your life you were extremely close to and perhaps idolised.

The lid of the small urn possesses a small handle structure which resembles a wave-like shape. This ties into the sea theme of the small cremation urn if you believe it resembles the depths of the oceans. However, the gentle flick of the handle adds that extra bit of design which makes this unique urn for ashes stand out from every other urn.

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.
