A striking work of art, the Allia Hand Blown Glass Urn features a graceful design in raspberry tones and is hand blown by a glassblowing artist. Although the glassblower follows the same artistic process in crafting each urn, the unpredictable nature of combining glass pigments, heat, and hand-blowing makes each beautiful urn one-of-a-kind.
Creating the colors of each urn involves rolling a ball of raw molten glass in pigment glass like you would roll an ice cream cone in sprinkles. Then the glass ball with its "sprinkles" is super-heated -- merging the colors in unique layers and intensity. Then the ball is blown with human breath and rolled into the urn shape. Upon cooling, the urn's final colors are revealed.
The Allia Hand Blown Glass Urn is a tall cylindrical urn with a flared top and round base. Given that each urn is hand blown, the urn you receive may vary in size and shape by a few inches and have different color effects from the image displayed.
The lid rests atop the Allia Hand Blown Glass Urn and can be sealed with adhesive (not included) if desired.
The Allia Hand Blown Glass Urn is an adult size urn with a capacity of 260 cubic inches (will hold the ashes of an adult who weighed 260 pounds or less prior to cremation).
