Ceramics - A Preferred Choice ?

Ceramics - A Preferred Choice ?

28 March 2018

Undoubtedly, ceramic is one of the most used materials for making urns and pottery around the world. The material, which is well-known for its toughness, endurance and exquisiteness, has played an important role in pottery since ancient times.

 

Why ceramic?

 

Ceramic is one of the oldest and most widely used materials throughout the history of humankind. Sculptures made of clay, traditional murals and various kinds of pots and urns for ashes have been discovered around the globe, as our ancestors used them for different purposes. The sturdiness and the wear-resistance of the material, make the ceramic products usable in the everyday life, as well as a beautiful addition to the home decoration.

 

The method of creating a ceramic vessel, which is commonly used in pottery today, consists in shaping the clay by using a pottery wheel and slowly molding it into a ceramic shape.

 

After forming the pre-designed body of the item, sculptures continue with the next stage - laying the pottery in the furnace and baking the ceramic model, which then turns into the so called "bisque". The artist then glazes the vessel, which is finally re-baked it into a finished product.

 

 

Choosing a suitable ceramic urns for ashes

 

Putting the cremated ashes of our loved ones is actually a concept that dates back to ancient civilizations. Evidence for that are the ancient burial urns found in China and  Greece. 

 

Finding a suitable cremation urn for your loved one may be overwhelming and distressing. There are various factors to consider when selecting a cremation urn, including shape, color, size and even your loved one's personality and interests.

Nowadays, you can find ceramic urns with various shapes and designs - oval, square, and even abstract urn with different kinds of textures and appearances. Studies show that people tend to keep the cremation ashes at home, rather than scattering them and it is no wonder why  abstract models, which look like part of the interior are mostly preferred.
