3E Turquoise/Orange “In Loving Memory” Miniature Urn
height 1-3/4″ x width 3-1/4″
interior volume approx 4 tablespoons
This is a very fine small memorial urn in turquoise, orange and green, which will hold approximately 4 tablespoonfuls of cremains.
This series of small memorial urns (reliquaries) came to me as I was thinking about the need for a very special container for keeping a small quantity of ash.
The inscription on this memorial urn reads “In Loving Memory.” It is made of fine white porcelain, carved and colored with many soft layers of underglazes, each layer applied and allowed to dry before another was added, a process of many hours. It was bisque fired, glazed and fired again; then more tints were added in enamel, and it was fired a third time. These little urns have a contemplative quality that comes out of their slow and careful creation.
If you wish, you can glue the lid shut to protect the cremains. See details in the FAQ section.
