raku clay, epoxy, turquoise stone
This small urn is quietly dramatic and one of a kind. It is discreet enough for an office, bedroom or living room shelf. The oval hollow displays a polished turquoise stone. In crystal lore, Turquoise Howelite is the stone of awareness, helping to attune to the Higher Self, and to obtain release from emotional pain.
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. This urn has been waxed and buffed, giving it a rich black satin sheen. It should be sheltered from the elements.
The urn measures 7 inches high and 4 inches wide.
It comfortably holds a quarter the volume of a standard temporary cremation container, or about 2 cups.
It could hold a smaller do g, up to 30 lbs.

I try to send out orders the next business day. My urns with mounted crystals or fossils take an extra day as I wait for the jeweler's grade epoxy to permanently cure.
