An exquisitely carved urn with birds, fish, and the braided trunks of the Tree of Life. All the elements–earth, air, water, and the fire of living metabolism–are symbolized.
This urn is part of the carved saltfire series, made from white stoneware and carefully carved into intricate patterns reminiscent of carved ivory. Because salt firing is highly variable, colors are paler or deeper in different parts of the urn.
To calculate whether an urn is large enough, you should figure about 1 cubic inch per pound of living body weight. This urn holds 130 cubic inches. If ashes are partially scattered, or divided amongst loved ones, the urn would be sufficient for a larger individual’s cremains.
