Butterfly Raku Ceramic Cremation Urn
The unique Butterfly Raku Urn is a hand-thrown ceramic cremation urn made with love by a ceramic artist with over 30 years of experience in her craft. The urn has a Luster glaze and is decorated with a large raised carved butterfly. The butterfly is a symbol of change, growth, adaptability, transformation, resurrection, life, the soul, and the continuing cycle of life.
Raku is a traditional and ancient Japanese firing process where the urns are removed from the kiln at their maximum temperature and placed in a container filled with straw, leaves, or other organic material. The high heat from the urn sets the organic material on fire. The container is then sealed, allowing the flames, smoke, and oxygen deprived atmosphere to create the unique textures and colors of Raku.
Each Raku Butterfly Cremation Urn is a totally unique piece of art; no two will ever be alike.
