Snowfall Cremation Urn for Ashes
SKU: CUU 037
The Snowfall Cremation Urn for ashes combines royal blues and soft golds to create a beautiful, wintery and royal aesthetic.
This Raku Ceramic urn has a crystalline finish which provides a modern feel to the classic cylindrical shape. The Snowfall cremation urn looks best atop your mantelpiece with a lit fireplace, as the reflective properties of the finish spread warmth throughout your home.
The Snowfall Cremation Urn for Ashes is a large urn capable of holding the ashes of weight up to that of an adult.
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.
