Sovereign Cremation Urn for Ashes
SKU: CUU 038
Our Sovereign cremation urn has been handcrafted by skilled artisans into a beautiful rounded shape, representing wholeness, love, protection, and harmony. This is the perfect shape to keep your loved one’s ashes in so they are safe and guarded within the walls of this urn.
This urn is a unique raku fired piece with a beautiful bronze glazing which suggests it is a piece of royalty and very valuable. It is embossed with beautiful paisley-like patterns which bring a majestic touch and an enhanced sense of nobility.
The semicircular shape atop of the urn brings this whole piece together as it can be seen as a symbol that gives homage to ancient golden collars worn by Egyptians.
There may be variations between the images shown and the urn you receive, the process is unique and the natural reactions happen differently each time, leading to the patterns developing differently. This, of course, makes each Raku urn unique and distinct. The shape, size, and colour variations will however be the same as pictured.
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.
