Ancient Storage Urn

Classification: hand coiled ceramic earthenware cremation urns, funeral urns or funerary urns

Urn #145

 

For millenia ceramic vessels have been used for storage. In many ancient
cultures clay vessels had round bases and were intended to sit into the
earth or in a stand. These vessels were also used as funerary urns. This
particular Urn is a combination of a typical Egyptian or Roman storage
vessel with a pedestal form inspired by an African ceramic stand. The
stand is a tripod that reminds me of tree roots growing into the earth.
Earthenware clay is used for both the vessel and the pedestal. A fine clay
slip known as Terra Sigillata is applied in many layers onto the surface
of the piece and then lightly buffed to give it a soft sheen. It is a very
elegant form.
