Measures approx. 10 1/2″ H (to tip of handle pull) X 7 1/2″ W -at its widest
Capacity: approx. 180 cu. inches:
(for capacity calculation – if your loved one weighed 100# at passing, a 100 cu. inch capacity would be needed to hold cremains)
This raku urn (or lidded vase) has gorgeous metallic & iridescent coloration!! The base glaze is glossy and has beautiful metallic iridescent colors: coppers, gold, green, blues and (and more!). Highlighted on the front is a beautiful ‘spiral sun’ design accented by the black background.
As seen here, it displays beautifully as an object of art and, without the lid, could also be used to hold a lovely dried or cut flower arrangement (a liner should be used with water/fresh flowers as raku remains porous). In addition, this lidded vessel can also serve as a beautiful urn for a loved one or a pet. The lid can either be sealed permanently (I recommend using E-6000 if a sealed lid is preferred), or left loose for future potential of scattering ashes. In addition, it could be used as a ‘sharing urn’ since some families seem to prefer having a funeral home divide the cremains so that each family member can retain their own memorial of their loved one.
**Raku is for decorative use only as it is not food safe**
One of the benefits of using a lidded vessel as an urn is that it can grace its environment as a meaningful memento of your loved one-to you- without announcing to everyone who sees it what its contents are. All else who view it will most naturally see it as an art object.
If used as a lidded vase, it would be a great addition to any home or office setting as well as making a terrific gift item!
* Glazed inside and out
*As with all raku, it is one of a kind!
*Raku does remain porous, so if used for fresh flowers, a plastic liner is necessary. It displays beautifully on its own, but dried floral also looks stunning with it.
