The Seashell Ocean Theme Handmade Ceramic Cremation Urn is designed with an ocean sea life theme in mind. A classical pottery urn shape with handles, this funeral urn is a wonderful memorial to the beach-combing, seashore-loving ocean adventurer. The artist made molds of real sea shells from Washington beaches. An asymmetrical design clustered around the handles was chosen.
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 with the resulting ocean-blue coloring. The main color for the body was chosen and a palette of colors matching those of real sea organisms was selected. Great attention to detail is taken in the process of painting to achieve a trompe l'oeil affect.
As each ceramic urn is individually hand-crafted and thrown on the potter's wheel, the design is unique. These unique ceramic urns are generally made-to-order, so please allow up to six weeks for your urn to be shipped. Often, we can finish and deliver sooner, but if you need the cremation urn by a specific date please contact us at 1-877-236-7615 we can help determine what arrangements need to be made.
You may order this beautiful nature-themed handmade ceramic urn in a several different sizes to suit your need; we offer Standard (180 cubic inches), Large (220 c.i.), Companion or Double Urn (375 c.i.). The general rule to follow when figuring size is that 1 lb. healthy body weight equals 1 cubic inch of cremated remains; thus, a 180 lb. individual would need a 180 cubic inch funeral urn. For more help on urn sizing standards, I think a free standing easel style nameplate would be the best option to personalize this urn. Option two is a pendant Mediallion name plate to hang on urn.
