Large Handmade Ceramic Cremation Urn, Horsehair Raku, SacredUrns by Susan Fontaine Pottery

Sunset Horsehair Candle Urn 7 1/2" tall including finial candle top and 7 1/4" wide. Holds up to about 140 lbs. living weight of ashes. This special piece was created as a prayer pot, funeral urn or simply as a decorative art piece for your home. I created it to hold a small tea light candle to be used during a special ceremony or for reflective moments. It can be lit for the Memorial or Celebration of Life service or on special occasions such as an anniversary or bcan be lit for the Memorial or Celebration of Life service or on special occasions such as an anniversary or birthday to honor and celebrate the memory of a loved one. It can also hold written intentions and messages to a loved one or house sacred or special objects. I threw the piece on the wheel with Grolleg porcelain and then burnished it well with a fine colored terra sigillata to give it a gentle green color before bisque firing and second firing in a Raku kiln. I then applied Horsehair and sugar granules within a narrow window of time when the pot was removed from the fire to achieve the desired visual effects. This pot has been sealed with an acrylic sealer to enhance the sheen and durability. Horsehair Raku is a particular beautiful art form that was not intended for functional food use. The lid can be temporarily sealed with museum wax or permanently sealed with an epoxy glue. Wooden base is sold in customizations for $18. read more
