Inspired by the ancient art of Japanese Raku pottery, the Earth’s Monument offers a spectacular way to memorialize a loved one. Due to the nature of the process, no two Raku urns are exactly alike making your urn truly one of a kind. 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, radiant flashes of color appear. After cooling, the urn is topped with a collection of sticks and stones. The cap rests on top of the opening. We recommend that you glue the cap to create a permanent seal.
Size: 10 inches high
Capacity: 210 Cubic Inches of Remains (Equal to 210 pounds before cremation)
Opening: Top Loading. Can be sealed with glue.
Because each urn is handmade and fired individually, there are variations and imperfections in the color which make the urn one of a kind. The colors of your particular urn will vary somewhat from that shown in the photo.
You can choose to add the optional wooden base for personalization. (The urn itself cannot be engraved.)
