Royal Blue Pet Ashes Urn
SKU: CUC 044 P
This cremation urn is round in shape, which thins out as the urn cascades lower down. The rounded shape resembles that of a crystal ball. This symbolises integrity and karma. The bright and eye capturing warm blue tones on the urn symbolise sharpness and leadership. The spherical patterns created enclose around the top and bottom sectors of the urn, leaving slightly speckled negative spaces scattered throughout the remaining body of the urn.
This ceramic crystal urn can be depicted as being similar in looks to an aerial view of a beach, with the majority of it being covered in royal blue colours, with striking goldy-brown tones peering through the gaps, resembling sand. This urn could be a good way to remember a loved one who had an interest in being at the beach. This ceramic urn for ashes has a beautiful final touch to the lid as it is manually trimmed with a place to set and light a small memorial candle as a thoughtful token to commemorate the life of a loved one.
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.
This urn has a beautiful final touch as the lid is manually trimmed with a place to set and light a small remembrance candle, the perfect token to commemorate the life of a loved one.
