Green Leaves Individual Urn
This urn is a full size urn, intended for your loved one, it is approximately 9” x 9” x 9” and will hold up to 220 cubic inches. ** Shown here are the four different sizes of urns, this listing is for the largest of the four. I have also shown here how glazes vary in each kiln firing. These are all handmade on the potter’s wheel. Shapes and sizes may vary slightly… my human touch is what make these special.
Each leaf that you see on this urn is hand carved. The beautiful green/blue transparent glaze fills in the incised lines to create a darker line. I originally called this urn “Playing in the Leaves” and intended it for pets, but many of my customers wanted a larger size for their family member. This glaze reminds me of a walk in the woods, in springtime, when the leaves are new, fresh, bright green.
I make each urn at the potters wheel. The leaf pattern that you see is hand carved while the clay is soft. 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.
Urns are made 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.
