"Blue Heaven" Large Dog Cremation Urn
Pet cremation urn for a large dog (who had a healthy living weight of up to 70 lbs).
This is sized at 5 cups, a volume which usually may hold cremains of a large dog who had a healthy weight in life of up to 70 lbs. It can also be used to hold a smaller amount of ash along with a collar or other memento.
I used a warm rusty brown, heavy stoneware clay to create the urn. After an initial bisque firing to strengthen the piece, I added layers of brilliant blue glossy glaze then high fired to glassify. What results is this wonderfully variegated bright blue urn, with depths of running blue mixed with areas of creams and dark brown. This glaze brings to mind the heavens and galaxies above where cats and dogs we have loved play eternally.
The lid has a single raised paw print on the surface, stained with dark brown. A leather band decorates the rim.
A special urn you can treasure always.
To be sure of the urn size to order, measure your pet's cremain volume or consult your veterinarian.
