Blue Galaxy Urn, Medium
The Blue Galaxy Urn is named so because of the glaze which reminds me of galaxies, and infinite universes. The glaze varies from beautiful shades of blue to subtle browns.
This urn is is intended for a smaller size person, or it is a perfect pet urn, it will hold up to 120 lb. – 7” x 7” x 7” 120 cubic inches**
I make each urn at the potters wheel. It is then fired in the kiln for 9 hours to harden. I then glaze it with different layers of glaze to achieve the variations you see. This particular urn includes a layering of up to five different layers to achieve the galaxy effect. The final step is to fire it again in the kiln for 15 hours which allows the glaze to reach it’s melting point.
I make urns in four sizes, full size, medium size, small size and petite keepsake. Please check the shop for other sizes available.
All of my pottery is handmade, one piece at a time. All sizes are approximate, meaning they may vary slightly in size… maybe 1/4-1/2″.
** One cubic inch = One pound of live weight.
