The Korean Silla Style Jar ceramic cremation urn is based on an ancient Korean lidded vessel from the Silla Dynasty. The body and the tall foot are thrown separately and assembled. The lid and foot are decorated with incising and cut-out shapes.
Silla (57 B.C. - 935 A.D.) was one of the Three Kingdoms of Korea. This mounted vessel is typical of the distinctive stoneware of this period with the high flaring foot with perforations and an overhanging lid. The surface of this piece has a wood-ash style glaze that enhances the incised decoration. Since each Korean Silla Style Jar 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.
