The Lotus ceramic cremation urn has a delicate, hand-carved lotus pattern on the body and lid. It has a celadon glaze which enhances the design as it pools into the carved lines showing a deeper celadon blue. This funeral urn is inspired by an exquisite Chinese funeral vase from the Song Dynasty (1000 or 1100 A.D.). It is thrown in two pieces and then assembled. The thrown lid is carved with a hollow openwork lotus bud handle that conatins a porcelain bead. The body is also carved with a lotus pattern that ascends from the base. The lotus is a beautiful eastern symbol for rebirth. Since each Lotus 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
Since this urn has been painstakingly crafted down to the last intricate detail, it is intended to be kept at home. However, this urn can also be entombed in an oversized cemetery columbarium niche or buried in an earth grave. Please note that some cemetery regulations may require the use of an urn vault prior to earth burial, but due to the large size of this urn, a standard-sized urn vault cannot be used.
