Spirit Urn Pet Urn for Cat or Small Dog
Pet urn for dog or cat, a unique wood fired spirit urn by Brenda Werner, Malloryville Pottery.
A spirit urn is created by placing urns among ferns, moss, lichen, wood shavings, and other natural materials in a wood-fired barrel kiln.
Once the kiln is lit, smoke and flame react with the natural materials to produce unique and unpredictable patterns on the surface of each urn. The kiln heats and smokes for several days before it can be opened.
This urn has some golden yellow and ruby red tones, and some interesting spattering patterns in gold, black, blue, and red. There are random reddish and bluish-black striping patterns that move across the base of the urn to the lid.
I seal the outside with bees wax to enhance the patterns; no glaze is used. As a result, his vessel is not meant for liquids or foods.
The spirit of a beloved pet is ready to inhabit each of these very special urns.
The size of this urn will hold about 2 cups of cremains, suitable for a pet who had a healthy weight in life of up to 30 lbs.
