Our Raku-fired ceramic cremation urns are beautiful and very popular with our customers. Hand crafted in the USA, each urn is individually bisqued and fired using a reduction chamber to create incredibly colorful splashes of copper-colored brilliance.
Here are two recent handmade Raku-fired ceramic cremation urns.
First, the Imperial:
The "dolphin blue" finish beneath the copper flashing adds warmth and depth to the piece. The artist added extra flashing at the request of one of our customers, and it turned out quite nicely.
Usually with the Imperial Blue Raku Ceramic Urn the copper flashing is more of an accent to the blue finish, but this piece reverses the color balance and in doing so showcases the unique characteristics of Raku ceramics.
Next, we have the Celestial:
The Handmade Celestial Blue Raku Ceramic Cremation Urn is a little shaplier than the previous urn. Pictured above is a companion size, so the difference is less pronounced, but you can notice that the sides are a little more curvaceous, the lid does not have a pronounced point, and the copper flashing is more of an accent than a central feature.
