raku pottery, horsehair, fumed iron, terra sigillata, feathers
This half sized feather raku urn has dramatic black lines, and a warm, rust-colored background. It was finished with terra sigillata, an ancient Roman formulation of very fine clay, which wasy applied and burnished to give their pots sheen and to make them less porous.
After the urn has been bisque fired, I heat it in my outdoor kiln. When it reaches 1100 degrees, I remove the urn with long iron tongs, and apply feathers. As they sizzle, permanent black lines form on the pot. I spray an iron solution around the bottom to give the pot a nice warm glow. All the pictures are of the same pot. You have a choice of either the flared horns or stirrup lid.
With the lid, the urn measures 11 inches high, 5 inches wide and has a 2.5 inch base.
It comfortably holds half the volume of a standard temporary cremation container, or about 4 cups.

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.
