The handcrafting process entails heating a ceramic urn in a kiln until it reaches 2000 degrees. It is then removed from the heat and plunged into wood shavings, which ignite instantly. After smoldering overnight, brilliant flashes of color appear. After cooling, the urn is topped with a collection of sticks and stones.
Because each urn is handmade and fired individually, there are variations and imperfections in color, which makes the urn one of a kind. The colors of your particular urn will vary somewhat from that shown in the photo.
