10 1/2" tall including fineal top and 6" wide. This ceramic urn will hold a shy 130 lbs. living weight of ashes. It is a striking piece and would make a lovely addition to any home as a piece of fine ceramic art as well! Pit Firing is a magical process. The pots are unglazed and finished by the elements of nature. Each piece is totally unique and cannot be replicated! I threw this piece on the wheel with porcelain and then burnished it with a fine terra sigillata before bisque firing. It was then placed in the ground in a large sawdust lined pit along with other pots. It was covered with kelp, manure, coffee grounds, wood and other organic materials and set fire. I absoluetly love this process and the elemental qualities and colors the fire produces! This pot has been sealed with an acrylic sealer for durability and protection. Wooden Bases are available in Customizations for $20. The lid can be temporarily sealed with museum wax or permanently sealed with an epoxy glue.
