Product Description

The Greek Pithos Cremation Urn in White was inspired by an ancient Greek Pithos vase circa 600 B.C. It is thrown from hearty earthenware clay in two parts and assembled. The amphora-like handles, decorated with carving and fenestration, are hand built additions. Terra Sigillata finish.

This particular vessel was inspired by an actual Grecian urn of the Pithos style from the Carlos Collection of Ancient Art at Emory University. The elegant shape of the body is enhanced by the decorative handbuilt and carved handles with their window-like cutouts. It is made of an earthen-ware clay body rich in mica. The piece was thrown in two sections and assembled. The lid fits snugly into the the neck and has a small thrown jar for a handle. The surface is achieved by adding layers of a fine clay slip called a terra sigillata. This particular terra sigillata is made from a fine light colored clay and seems to have a soft glow emanating from the surface. The terra sigillata is applied in many thin layers with a soft brush and then polished to give the lovely sheen to the surface before the vessel is fired.
