raku clay, epoxy, chrysoprase stone
This half sized raku urn is a dramatic, beautiful final resting place for one you love. The body of the urn has a waxed black satin finish. The oval hollow displays a polished Chrysoprase stone. Choose stone #1 in the first picture, or stone #2, in the 2nd picture, or #3 in the 3rd picture.
Chrysoprase is used in crystal lore to promote forgiveness and empathy. It is thought to lift depression and fear, improve emotional health, and encourage a more positive outlook on life.
Once a year I go to the Bancroft Gem Fair to find the best crystal specimens. Then I hand build the urn with a custom sized recess to fit the individual stone. The urn is bisque fired, then put in an outside raku kiln. When it is glowing hot, I remove it with long iron tongs, and bury it in a bucket of black walnut shavings. I cover it tightly, and leave it until it turns either a rich velvety black.
The urn measures 9 inches high and 5 inches wide. It comfortably holds half the volume of a standard temporary cremation container, or about 4 cups. As a pet urn, it would accommodate a husky, lab or retriever.
