The Seashells Through Time companion ceramic cremation urn is crafted in the shape of a classic style vase with a top-opening lid. Scallops, clams, starfish, snails, and mollusks are placed as if on the edge of the water amid seaweed. After the sculptural work was completed the urn was bisque-fired and painted with undercolorants. The main color for the body was chosen and a palette of colors matching those of real organisms was selected. Great attention to detail is taken in the process of painting to achieve a trompe l'oeil effect. Since each Seashells Through Time urn is special and one-of-a-kind, please allow for slight variations in color, texture, and size.
A Beautiful Ceramic Urn
Ceramic is made by heating raw materials, usually clay, in a kiln. The word "ceramic" comes from the Greek word keramikos, meaning pottery. Because ceramic cremation urns are often created, or thrown, by hand, please allow for slight variations in color, texture, and size.
Perfect for Home Display or Burial
Ceramic urns can be kept at home, entombed in a cemetery columbarium niche or buried in an earth grave. Please note some cemetery regulations may require that this urn be placed inside of an urn vault prior to earth burial.
