Hand-thrown by a master potter, the Fern Raku Ceramic Urn has a light crackle glaze with embossed ferns. On this urn, you can gently feel the imprint created by the fern leaves, and it is truly a unique piece of art. The background color is a soft cream color with green and metallic accents.
With raku-firing, this urn was removed from the kiln while the glaze was still hot, and the crackle effect occurs due to this shock between temperatures. Then, the urn is placed in an airtight container usually filled with sawdust that smokes and creates carbon that brings out the contrast of the crackle effect. The results of the raku technique is a cremation urn as unique and as beautiful as the life it honors.
The Fern Raku Ceramic Urn is a cylindrically shaped urn with fitted top lid. Given its hand-made nature, the urn will vary in appearance from the image displayed. Made in the USA.
