Raku is an ancient Japanese firing process where the ceramic urns are removed from the kiln at their maximum temperature and placed in a container filled with leaves, straw or other organic material. The organic material bursts into flame and the container is sealed. The smoke, flames, and oxygen starved atmosphere create the unique textures and colors of Raku.
This urn is available in three different colors (urn in photo above is Aqua Luster). Please click on the Detailed Images Tab to review the available colors. Since each urn is hand-thrown and hand-glazed, each urn is a totally unique piece of art; no two will ever be alike.
As these are custom works of hand-crafted art, please allow 4 weeks before your urn is shipped. Call us if you need it faster.
The Asian Calligraphy Urn is available in several different sizes to suit your need.
Standard (180 cubic inches) - approximately 11" tall

You may be wondering about the lids. Some people choose to leave the lid unsealed as the ashes are kept in a sealed plastic bag. However, many choose to seal the lid. Please Click on Ceramic and Marble Sealing Instructions Here
