Horsehair Urn with Temple Top Lid 10 1/4″ tall including finial top and 6 3/4″ wide. Holds about 160 lbs. living weight of ashes. I threw this piece on the wheel with Grolleg porcelain and burnished it with a fine terra sigillata before bisque firing and second firing in a Raku kiln. I then applied Horsehair and sugar granules within a narrow window of time when the pot was removed from the fire to achieve the desired visual effects. This pot has been sealed with an acrylic sealer to enhance the sheen and durability. Horsehair Raku is a particular beautiful art form that was not intended for functional food use. Wooden base is sold in variations for $18. The lid can be temporarily sealed with museum wax or permanently sealed with an epoxy glue.
