The Nigerian Style ceramic cremation urn is inspired by a Camaroon vessel from the William Itter collection of African Pottery. It is crafted using the coil technique. It is comprised of two separate pieces.
The Nigerian Style ceramic cremation urn urn is made from an earthenware clay that is rich in mica which imparts a subtle sheen to the surface of the vessel. It is a round bottom piece that sits on a pedestal made of the same clay giving it a regal feel. The set-in lid can be sealed. Since each Nigerian Style 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.
