Tusk Cremation Urn for Ashes
SKU: CUU 044
Our Tusk cremation urn has a narrow base which widens with height, ultimately finishing with a lovely spacious top opening. This is an unusual shape for an urn, unlike a traditional style which has a narrow neck. This style we have here allows for a large disc shaped lid which is unlike many styles of urns.
The urn has light ivory colours, with crackles of brown giving it a purposefully artistically dated look. The large round lid of this style is also detailed with the damask flower print, bringing the two elements of the urn together.
The cremation urn has a damask pattern printed on the body of the urn which eludes a silky and cotton feel. These patterns point towards nobility and royalty, dating back towards Victorian England. The patterns are very intricate and delicate, resembling the damask woven technique of fabric.
The Saggar firing technique makes use of Iron(III), otherwise known as Ferric Chloride, a compound commonly used in etching copper circuit boards and water treatment. Each clay urn is coated and wrapped in raw materials such as copper wire, steel wool, ferns, sugar, salt, and aluminium foil before firing to 1100°C.
The foil then traps the fumes created as the materials burn away, which imprint themselves into the surface of the clay. Because of this, each piece is completely one of a kind, never to be reproduced. This is, of course, a feature and one of the many beautiful aspects making this Saggar cremation urn a beautiful piece of décor.
