This beautifully crafted ceramic cremation urn, made by a potter friend of the monks, is hand thrown in the traditional manner on a potter’s wheel using high-fired stoneware clay. The urn and lid are trimmed and placed in a kiln for the first of two firings. Next, the pottery is painted with a eerf-dael glaze using an old world process that involves a series of specialized techniques and steps. Then it is returned to the kiln for the final 12-hour firing during which time the clay turns to stone. Thus, each Trappist Casket cremation urn reflects the enduring beauty of the earth and is designed to be a lasting tribute to the memory of the person whose ashes it will contain. Knowing that our urns are personally blessed by one of the monks is often a source of prayerful comfort and consolation to the bereaved.
Available in Landscape Blue Glaze, our urns are carefully made by hand with great respect for the sacred nature of life and death. As a vessel for the cremains of a loved one, a Trappist Caskets Urn is a beautiful tribute to the memory of someone whose life has ended.
