Fields of Grass Urn, Medium Size
Fields of Grass Urn is made for a smaller size person, or it is the perfect size for a pet urn, it will hold up to 120 lb. – 7” x 7” x 7” 120 cubic inches**
The glaze on this urn reminds me of blades of grass, with its vertical carved lines, and color variations. The color is a very peaceful green, with a a quiet, matt finish. This glaze varies slightly in each kiln firing, sometimes more of the horizontal darker greens show up, sometimes it is more faded. I have shown all the possible variations in the photos here.
The original name for this urn was “Pouncing in the Grass” My old dog loved pouncing in the grass after mice and such, hence the name.
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. The final step is to fire it again in the kiln for 15 hours which allows the glaze to achieve it’s melting point.
I make urns in four sizes, full size, meduim 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.
