raku clay, epoxy, wax, turquoise howelite
This small urn is quietly dramatic and one of a kind. It is discreet enough for an office, bedroom or living room shelf. The hollow holds a beautiful specimen of turquoise howelite. In crystal lore, Turquoise Howelite is the stone of awareness, helping to attune to the Higher Self, and to obtain release from emotional pain. The body and lid of the urn are a waxed black raku.
Once a year I go to the Bancroft Gem Fair to find the best fossils and crystals. I hand build the urn with a custom sized recess to fit the individual piece. The urn is first bisque fired, then put in my outdoor raku kiln. When it is glowing hot, I remove it with long iron tongs, and bury it in pine shavings and straw. I cover it tightly, and leave it until the straw has left a bold texture. I use jeweler's epoxy to mount the stone in its recess, then leave it to cure for 2 days to ensure a permanent bond.
This urn is 6.5 inches high, 3 inches across the top and has a 1.75 inch base. It holds 1 1/2 cups. It is ideal for an infant, or a portion of adult ashes. As a pet urn it can accommodate a cat, rabbit, toy poodle or dachshund.
