Large Raku Urn 9" tall including Temple Top finial by 6 1/2" wide This piece will hold about 125 lbs. living weight of ashes. Pit Firing is a special organic process with the end result visually resembling the magical world of the cosmos. 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 absolutely love this process and the elemental qualities and colors the fire produces! Wooden Bases are available in variations (black or mahogany) for an additional $20 in Customizations.. This piece was low fired so it is porous and not food safe or water tight. It has been sealed inside with an acrylic sealer for durability and protection. The lid can be temporarily sealed with museum wax or permanently sealed with an epoxy glue.
