Product Description:
The Greek Pithos Ceramic Funeral Cremation Urn is made from ceramic by hand one at a time. This particular vessel was inspired by a Greek Pithos ca.650-600 BC from the Carlos Collection of Ancient Art at Emory University. The elegant shape of the body is enhanced by the decorative hand built and carved handles with their window-like cutouts. It is made of an earthen-ware clay body rich in mica. The piece was thrown in two sections and assembled. The lid fits snugly into the the neck and has a small thrown jar for a handle. The surface is achieved by adding layers of a fine clay slip called a terra sigillata. This particular terra sigillata is made from a fine light colored clay and seems to have a soft glow emanating from the surface. The terra sigillata is applied in many thin layers with a soft brush and then polished to give the lovely sheen to the surface before the vessel is fired.
The urn has two chambers, the lidded box forming the bottom floors and a lidded box that lifts out.

"The rock arrived early, just in time for a ceremony. Everyone was cooperative with the plaque design, and the rock was exactly as described."
