Mid-sized Handmade Ceramic Urn, Crystalline glaze by Susan Fontaine Pottery

10 1/4" tall including finial and 5 3/4" wide. This simply elegant piece with a "Temple Top finial" will enhance any room and hold up to about 110 lbs. of living weight of ashes. Crystalline glazing is a particularly beautiful but equally involved process. The pieces are brought to a high temperature quickly in the kiln and then soaked at a slightly lower temperature to allow for the special crystals to form from the zinc "seeds" in the glaze. A special "pedastal" mmperature to allow for the special crystals to form from the zinc "seeds" in the glaze. A special "pedastal" must be made for each piece to catch the glaze as it runs down the vase. Then the vase must be carefully (the vase can be easily broken at this point) separated from the pedastal and then the foot is ground smooth. These glazes are lead-free and non-toxic. Food and machine safe. Each vase has a clear, interior liner glaze. Crystals sparkle like snowflakes when displayed in natural or under bright lights. Unfortunately photographs do not capture the reflective beauty of the piece. Every item displayed is ready to ship. Each crystalline piece is unique and cannot be duplicated. The exact same glaze and firing schedule will produce varying crystals from piece to piece! Wooden bases available to add to order in Customizations read more
