Ceramic urns and ceramic pet urns: beautiful, earth friendly and one-of-a-kind
No two ceramic urns or ceramic pet urns will ever look the same. These beautiful urns come in a variety of colors and hues, and they’re literally one-of-a-kind.
Of the many materials available for cremation urns, ceramic offers the greatest variety in color, looks, finishes and shapes. Ceramic pottery can resemble petrified wood, stone or even jewels. It can look vibrant and iridescent, or it can convey an earthy vibe. It can appear polished and shiny ― or it can be flat finished and subdued.
Ceramic cremation urns include cremation boxes, as well as circular vessels. Even the lids of ceramic urns have a distinct personality, ranging from laser-cut, metal handles to delicately-shaped, ceramic lids.
Affordable urns – without sacrificing quality or beauty
In addition to being beautiful, ceramic urns offer the greatest variety in price. When a loved one passes, we know it can put a tremendous strain on your budget. You can find many attractive ― yet affordable ― ceramic urns on this website, in addition to higher priced works of pottery.
Diverse pottery techniques create lovely results
Many of our ceramic cremation urns are Raku style ― a type of Japanese-inspired pottery. Artists carefully mold the clay by hand, rather than turning the clay on a potter’s wheel, and they fire the pottery at a high combustion level. The result is a truly unique and beautiful piece.
Some of our artists prefer to turn their clay on a potter’s wheel, using special techniques to create stunning finishes and colors on their ceramic urns and ceramic pet urns. For example, one artist rubs the clay with a polished stone before firing each piece of pottery; while another artist applies salt and soda in the kiln to create colorful “flashing” on the surface of each urn.
Ceramic urns are ideal for display or burial
If you choose ceramic urns or ceramic pet urns for display, they can provide a beautiful resting place for a loved one.
If you’re looking for burial options instead, ceramic urns are some of the most biodegradable cremation urns available. All our artists use earth-friendly materials, and if you bury these urns in the ground, they will disintegrate over time.
