This small sculpture has the flavor of European folk tales: a living boat that carries an adventurer across the seas. One can sense the wind blowing it to an unknown, magical destination.
It is a one-of-a-kind artwork, made from stoneware clay, tinted with soft pigments, and fired it to strong hardness in a soda kiln.
The Seahorse Boat Miniature Urn can be used as a reliquary, or memorial urn, to hold a small quantity of cremains after most of the ashes have been scattered or divided. It will hold about 1/2 cup. You could also use it to keep a precious memento such as jewelry or a watch.
