Imperial Raku Pet Urn in Aqua Luster
SKU: urn_utt_ir


This refined pet urn is a gorgeous final resting place for your beloved friend. It is completely made by hand by our ceramic artist, Pam.

The style of the piece is Raku, which is a traditional ancient Japanese firing technique that transforms the glaze of each particular urn in interesting and unique ways. Raku utilizes a special chamber in which straw or dry plant material is placed.  When the red hot urn is placed in this chamber, the organic material bursts into flame, starves the chamber of oxygen, and draws fantastic color and, depending on the glaze, intricate crackling patterns out.

This urn is availalbe in these three finishes:
