Zircon Pet Ashes Urn
SKU: CUC 054 P
The Zircon cremation urn for pets ashes combines pale white hues with soft sky blues, creating a fascinating ensemble of colours reminiscent of the sea. This Ceramic Crystalline urn has been expertly handcrafted to represent a soft spoken crystal.
The lid of this urn is purely ceramic despite its looks, beautiful metallic tones create a contrast to the base and body of the urn.
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.
