Picnic Cremation Urn for Ashes
SKU: CUU 033
Our Picnic cremation urn is handcrafted into a deep rounded shape, giving the comfort of harmony and protection. The soft curves and circular shape represent unity, commitment, and love.
The urn has little nodule-like hooks on the sides and the lid for a string of cord to be wrapped around them, bringing the two components together, and ensuring the safety of it’s precious contents.
This adult urn is hand painted by our skilled artisan using a shiny glaze which creates a clean and glossy finish. The urn has unique markings and gentle flower prints covering the sides and lid of the urn. These artistic styles give the urn a hint of expressionism and abstraction painting style. The intricate detailing gives one the impression of lacework and soft cotton.
Picnic has a delicate feel to it with the use of pale pastel colours, including sky blue and blush pink, onto a glistening white base. This colour palette brings a calm and peaceful aura to any room, creating a space of serenity for your loved one’s eternal rest. The cord with this urn is a satin grey colour that adds a touch of elegance to the piece.
The Raku firing technique consists of glazed ceramics which undergo a quick firing process at around 1000^C. 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.
