Temple Top Raku Urn 11 1/2" tall including Temple Top by 6 1/2" wide This piece will hold up to about 165 lbs. living weight of ashes. I threw this urn on the wheel and threw the temple top finial on the lid before bique firing it. It was then glazed woth a Copper raku glaze and fired in a gas kiln. At a precise temperature it was quickly pulled and "reduced" in a trash can to produce the elemental effects. The black marks are caused by organic materials burned in the reduction process. It has been sealed inside and out with an acrylic sealer for durability and protection. The wooden base is sold in customizations for $20. The lid can be temporarily sealed with museum wax or permanently sealed with an epoxy glue.
