Paragon Cremation Urn for Ashes
SKU: CUU 029
Our Paragon Cremation Urn for Ashes has a shiny nude exterior which resembles a Mother of Pearl, adhering to its namesake, Paragon, which also means pearl. This piece has a beautiful shining iridescent surface with a bulbous round shape, much like a pearl. The pearl is often a symbol of wisdom, higher spirit, health, and love. A soft circular shape such as this is often representative of karma, wholeness, and completion. This is the perfect cremation urn to symbolise the completion of your loved one’s journey with you and how they are in a better place now, but always with you within your heart.
This urn is topped with an almost flat bronze lid. The bronze lid ties into the idea of wealth and beauty which really compliments the pearl-like appearance of this urn for ashes.
This is one of our crystalline glaze urns which has 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.
