Claudio's Urn

This is a Urn that i designed for my late older brother. It was wheel thrown and turned. After it was bisqued, I high-fired a crystalline glaze onto the surface of the body. I  carved a lotus bud and added it on the lid and fired it separately to earthenware temperature using a honey glaze to match the honey background color on the body. The writing on the body is my late brother's name (Claudio Sanna), his date of birth and death followed by a message 'from the family', saying "We Love You". The nickel oxide in the glaze give this urn it's blue crystals.
