Raku Urns have a unique manufacturing process which gives them value and individuality.
These cremation urns undergo a quick firing process that involves no glaze whatsoever. The bare clay is coated with iron (III) and carefully wrapped in organic materials, rope, wire and minerals and then packed in a chamber and fired to 1100 degrees.
During the firing, the organic materials burn away and the flame marks, vapour flashes and mineral fumes trapped in the aluminium foil saggar create a beautiful arrany of smokey soft colours on the surface.
They are then finished to create an urn as unique as the individual it will serve. Each cremation urn is one of a kind and not repeatable, a perfect tribute for your loved one.
