Ethereal Raku Cremation Urn
Featuring our beautiful Ethereal Raku Cremation Urns (Dolphin Blue Glaze shown as main photo). These are professionally hand-crafted ceramic raku urns. Each unique urn has colors and textures uniquely created by the use of ancient Japanese Raku firing processes. The colors in the Dolphin Blue glaze are predominantly shades of blue, green, and copper but other colors may also be present, making each urn unique in its pattern of coloring. This glaze is flat, not shiny, and the surface has a slight texture and is not completely smooth. The Aqua Luster Crackle glaze can turn out to be any shade of blue, blue-green, or green, and can often have small areas of copper or other colors in it. The coloring depends on the humidity, heat of the fire, oxygen deprivation in the raku process, and other factors which make it difficult to determine the final outcome. The size and contemporary design makes this a versatile decorative piece of ceramic memorial art that will fit in any home. Other colors are available - See Detailed images and options.
NOTE: The example white crackle color shows a dragonfly. This is an example of the White Crackle Glaze. If you are interested in the Dragonfly urn then please follow this link: https://www.memorial-urns.com/dragonfly-raku-urn.html
