The Earth's Memorial Raku Keepsake Urn for ashes is handcrafted using a process based on the tradition of Japanese Raku pottery. During Raku, a ceramic urn is heated in a kiln until it reaches 2000 degrees. It is then plunged into a pit of wood shavings that ignites instantly. The urn smolders overnight to create radiant flashes of color.
Once cooled, each urn is topped with a unique collection of sticks and stones. The beauty of this urn makes it perfect for display. The cap rests on top of the opening. We recommend that you glue the cap to create a permanent seal.
- Size: 4” x 3”
- Capacity: 12 cubic inches
A note on urn size:
This is a keepsake “urn.” It holds much less than an Adult Size urn. Keepsakes are designed for those who would like to keep a small amount of remains as a remembrance.
Because each urn is handmade and fired individually, no two Raku cremation urns are exactly the same. Variations and imperfections in color make each urn one-of-a-kind.
The Earth’s Memorial Keepsake Urn is the perfect companion to the larger version which is also available in our store.
We are often asked if it is possible to select an Earth’s Memorial Raku Keepsake urn that contains a particular set of colors or a pattern of hues. These urns are shipped directly from a warehouse, so, unfortunately, we cannot choose an individual piece. However, we understand that this is a special, once in a lifetime purchase and will accept returns (only if the urn is unused) for any reason within 7 days of receipt. Please see our return policy for full details.
