In Raku firing each piece of pottery is taken from the kiln red hot, the molten glaze silken and glowing. Then it is placed in a bed of straw or leaves in an air-tight container. The dry plant material immediately bursts into flame and the “reduction chamber” is sealed. The flame and the smoking, oxygen starved atmosphere transform the glaze surface creating the unique, seemingly ancient, colors and textures of raku. So each of our Raku fired urns is special and one of a kind.
These items are generally made-to-order, so please allow 3-6 weeks for your order to be crafted and shipped. However, we are often able finish and deliver the urn sooner, so if you need the cremation urn by a specific date please contact us and we can help determine what arrangements need to be made. As ceramic urns are hand-made, there may be slight, minor variations between what is pictured and what you receive.
