Pampas Cremation Urn for Ashes
SKU: CUU 028
This urn is a beautifully white traditional shape-like urn. It has a clean and untouched feel to it as the white glistens in the light. It is embossed with a subtle paisley like pattern which covers the entirety of the urn.
This is one of our raku urns which has been hand polished, reflecting it’s Japanese style heritage, where raku first began during the 1580’s.
The Raku firing technique consists of glazed ceramics which undergo a quick firing process at around 1000℃. The pottery is then removed from the kiln whilst they are still glowing red hot to be placed in a material that would cool the pieces rapidly.
This can be done using materials that would readily catch fire, such as sawdust or paper, creating a ‘reduction’ atmosphere which consumes the oxygen available, creating carbon monoxide. The carbon monoxide draws out oxygen from the clay and glaze, intensifying the colours and textures. This creates orange, red, copper, and gold tones.
The pottery can also be cooled down via a ‘oxidation’ atmosphere by submerging the piece into cool water. The oxygen in the water reacts with the metals in the clay and glaze to create a finish which often consists of blue and green tones.
Ultimately, a myriad of colours are created within the glaze, and the extreme change in temperatures create a crackled look.
Each cremation urn is one of a kind and not repeatable, a perfect tribute to your loved one. This urn also has a matching keepsake that is available to be purchased in our store.
