Greek Krator Ceramic Cremation Urn
Item Description
The inspiration for the Greek Krator ceramic cremation urn came from the traditional Greek vessel form known as a Volute Krator. It was thrown in three parts and assembled with the addition of crafted volute handles and made from terra cotta clay.

This urn is based on a type of Greek vessel known as a Volute Krator, circa 515 B.C. As was traditional, it was thrown in three pieces: the body, the neck and the foot. After stiffening, the pieces are joined and crafted volute handles are attached. These vessels were usually decorated with complex imagery using different colored slips. This piece is intentionally left unadorned to focus on the elegant form. These forms were not customarily lidded so a custom lid has been created to enable the urn to be sealed. A special terra cotta clay that has fine particles of Mica is used. The surface is finished with many fine layers of terra sigillata, a very fine clay slip, and polished to create a soft sheen.

Since each Greek Krator 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.
