Our Dragonfly Raku Companion Urn is a ceramic urn for two individuals featuring our popular Dragonfly design. Raku is a traditional Japanese firing process used in the production of stoneware, and with the beautiful glaze finish and your choice of color scheme this ceramic urn is a beautiful memorial urn for your loved ones.
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. Thus, each of our one-of-a-kind Raku-fired funeral urns are unique in the particulars of the design and glaze finish.
As these ceramic companion urns are generally made-to-order, please allow up to 3-8 weeks for your urn to be shipped. Often, we can finish and ship the item out sooner, but if you need the urn by a specific date please contact us and we will make the necessary arrangements. These are handmade urns, and as such shape and colors of each urn will vary. **Colors and finish vary considerably.**
The general rule to follow when figuring size is that 1 lb. healthy body weight equals 1 cubic inch of cremated remains
Thus, a 180 lb. individual would need a 180 cubic inch funeral urn
